Neuroendocrine Tumors of Lung: Current Concepts, Limitations and New Insights
Tanupriya Agrawal, MD, PhD
Fine needle aspiration (FNA) and core biopsies play a significant role in diagnosis of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs), pre-operatively, guiding further management. The consensus conference held at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) intended to provide organ-specific classification of NENs. This session walks through the current classification of NENs of the lung and the challenges in cytology and small biopsies. Additionally, a brief discussion on new potential diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers of NENs.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Current classification of neuroendocrine tumors of the lung.
