Optimizing Rapid On-site Evaluations in the Bronchoscopy Suite: The Basics and Beyond
Christine N. Booth, MD
Do you find rapid on-site evaluation using modified Giemsa stains difficult? Are rapid on-site evaluations in the bronchoscopy suite a new or continuing part of your practice? This webinar will provide participants an opportunity to understand issues surrounding appropriate specimen triage, and highlight some of the pitfalls on EBUS rapid on-site evaluations. EBUS-guided FNA cases will be reviewed with audience polling during the webinar, with each case demonstrating a particular focus in regard to optimizing patient care.
This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.
- Interpret modified Giemsa-stained endoscopic transbronchial ultrasound-guided (EBUS) fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology slides
- Identify situations in which specimen triage is critical during EBUS-guided FNA rapid on-site evaluations, and select appropriate triage options
- Identify and avoid potential pitfalls in the interpretation of EBUS-guided FNA rapid on-site evaluations
