In house cytology of skin masses- tips and tricks
Have you been frustrated by your cytology samples and getting the right cytologic diagnosis? Here is your opportunity to develop those skills. This webinar will outline the tips and tricks to getting a cytologic diagnosis. We will start with how to increase your chances of a diagnostic quality sample – covering sample collection and preparation. We follow with an outline of a systematic approach to evaluation of cytologic specimens – identifying inflammation versus neoplasia and criteria of malignancy, and categorization of neoplasia as epithelial, mesenchymal, round cell, and neuroendocrine. We will then explore some of the exceptions to our cytology rules and guidelines of when to seek out help from an expert. All complemented with lots of pictures of clinical cytology specimens.
