Making Cytology Global

This session includes 1.5 hours of on-demand educational content. This content can be viewed starting March 1. There will also be a live 30-minute Q&A session with the faculty on Tuesday, March 16, from 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM Pacific Time.

In this course it will be shown by Cytopathologists of different parts of the world, the importance in making cytology global. One of the ways is to classify the lesions using a standardized reporting system. It will be presenting an international approach to the cytopathology of various body sites which will be a link to the WHO Classification of Tumors series. The principles of Cancer Classification by Cytopathology will be presented as well as the importance of using standardized nomenclature around the world. An example of the fundamental value of cytopathology in low/medium income countries will be demonstrated as well as the principles for the new four systems of classification using cytopathology: lung, lymph node, pancreas and soft tissue.
