USCAP Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology from Head to Toe: An Anatomical Approach 2022 (CME VIDEOS)


Bone and soft tissue pathology is challenging, even for experienced surgical pathologists. Mesenchymal tumors are rare, show a wide morphologic spectrum with significant histologic overlap between benign and malignant tumors and between mesenchymal and non-mesenchymal tumors. Moreover, the classification of bone and soft tissue tumors continues to evolve with rare “new” entities being described with ever-increasing frequency on the basis of distinctive molecular or histologic features. As the field grows more complex, surgical pathologists may struggle to stay up to date with new entities, changes in staging guidelines, recently developed immunohistochemical and molecular diagnostic tests, and may therefore struggle with accurate diagnosis. To help resolve these issues and update your current knowledge, USCAP is offering a unique mentoring opportunity with experienced educators who can help you focus on these updates through interactive dialogue and shared exemplary cases.


Develop a differential diagnosis for bone and soft tissue tumors based on anatomic site and histologic patterns
Apply immunohistochemical studies to resolve the differential diagnoses of mesenchymal tumors
Understand the role and limitations of diagnostic molecular studies in the diagnosis of mesenchymal tumors
