Current practice of cytology has been revolutionized by newer morphologic, molecular tests & management guidelines. This course is designed to provide updated practical, problem-solving knowledge for practicingcytologists. The course encompasses gynecologic (Pap test) and exfoliative (including fine needle aspiration) cytology presented by distinguished faculty members with expertise in their respective fields and experienced in post graduate educational activities at the national and international levels. A didactic lecture format will be used to address a wide array of entities encountered in gynecologic, head & neck, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, pulmonary and effusion cytology.
Presentations will strongly emphasize morphologic features, differential diagnosis and diagnostic pitfalls with integration of ancillary techniques (immunohistochemistry and molecular tests) when pertinent. Correlation with clinical, radiologic and histologic findings will be provided. Quallity control, quality assurance and laboratory management issues fundamental to sound cytology practice will also be illustrated. Time is allotted for questions and answers to encourage participant interaction. A comprehensive syllabus containing illustrative PowerPoint presentations and handouts for each topic will be provided at the course.
