Course Description
Pathologists are generally unfamiliar with a variety of entities in lung, pleural, cardiac and mediastinal pathology, leading to diagnostic errors and creating practice gaps requiring attention. The panorama covered in this interactive microscopy course includes interstitial lung disease, lung infections, pulmonary vasculitis, mesothelial proliferations, mediastinal neoplasia, lung allograft rejection and mimics, heart transplant rejection and distinction from mimics, best practices for optimal triage of lung cancer samples for molecular testing, the cytology of pleural effusions, criteria for aortic vasculitis and other large vessel pathology, recognition of heart valvular pathology, criteria for diagnosis of giant cell arteritis, native heart biopsy interpretation and thoracic soft tissue neoplasms. This faculty ensemble has the professional experience to improve your practice with confidence. You will see cases that make an indelible impression. Breathe easy: this is USCAP, at the heart of education.

Target Audience
Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training
