Getting the most out of a liver biopsy
This webinar is inspired by world renowned veterinary hepatopathologist Dr John Cullen, along with my personal aim to provide clients with the most informative results possible. It is important that the clinician and pathologist work together, with history and sample selection having significant influences on the interpretation and final diagnosis. It is also important to realise the limitations and complicated nature of liver biopsies and disease. The webinar will cover topics including: indication for liver biopsy sampling; approaches to maximise your chances of a diagnostic sample; a pathologist’s approach to interpreting liver biopsy specimens; and how communication between the clinician and pathologist will help to maximise outcomes. If time allows, I will briefly discuss some case studies.
This webinar is sponsored by ASAP Laboratory
