"Identifying respiratory disease in pathology" will look at the entire spectrum of making a pathology diagnosis. We will start by explaining various specimen collection methods. Once the specimen is collected and processed in histology or cytology, the presentation will then look at different staining techniques and IHC/molecular methods used to make a diagnosis. The presentation will conclude with a few case studies that will incorporate the presentation to diagnosis of a respiratory condition.
- Learn the types of cells found in respiratory pathology.
- Understand proper specimen collection methods.
- Identify IHC stains and molecular techniques used in common diagnoses
