Breast Cytology: Common Entities and Diagnostic Challenges
|Uma Krishnamurti, MD, PhD|
This case based webinar will discuss the cytological features of common benign and malignant conditions of breast along with their histologic correlates in the different specimen types evaluated. There will be comparison of breast cytology with breast core needle biopsy and discussion of diagnostic limitations of breast cytology. There will also be discussion of testing of predictive markers on breast cytological specimens.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Use cytological criteria to identify benign and malignant conditions of the breast.
- Identify histologic correlates of breast cytological specimens.
- Compare breast cytological specimens with breast core needle biopsy.
- Know the diagnostic limitations of breast cytology.
- Understand feasibility of testing predictive markers in breast cytological specimens.
