Kidney: Recognizing the Common and Not So Common Entities
Bonnie Choy, MD
This case-based webinar will explore the common and unexpected entities that are received by the cytology laboratory as kidney masses. Cytomorphologic features on fine needle aspiration smears and touch preparations, differential diagnoses, as well as diagnostic pitfalls will be emphasized to help participants formulate a reliable diagnostic approach. A review of current ancillary studies will also be discussed.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Recognize cytomorphologic features of common and uncommon kidney masses and the diagnostic pitfalls.
- Formulate differential diagnoses based on cytomorphologic findings.
- Be familiar with ancillary studies currently used for diagnostic workup of kidney masses.
