Improve Your Ability to Interpret Gastrointestinal and Liver Specimens

This recording of Johns Hopkins' 15th Annual Current Topics in Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology event delivers a practical overview for pathologists who encounter gastrointestinal and liver specimens in daily practice. Interpretation of biopsies of the upper GI tract mucosa and the liver will be addressed, as well as recent advances in pancreatic and biliary pathology. Participants should come away with a better understanding of interpretation of mucosal biopsies, liver biopsies, pancreatic/biliary disorders, and the application of modern techniques to gastrointestinal disorders. The program is intended for community pathologists, gastrointestinal specialists, hepatologists, GI and hepatology fellows and residents. It will help you to better:

  • Evaluate 
liver biopsies for fatty liver disease
  • Summarize inflammatory patterns associated with esophagitis
  • Identify key components to molecular analysis of colon cancer
  • Discuss advances in genomic medicine as it relates to gastrointestinal malignancies
  • Identify common and rare gastric and small bowel neoplasms
  • Understand Helicobacter-negative gastritis, gastrointestinal lymphomas, drug-induced liver injury, non-IBD colitis, and iatrogenic injury to the GI tract

Discover New Guidelines

A clinically based update, this learn-at-your-own-pace course in GI and liver pathology provides a maximum of 11.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Available online or on disk, it provides access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so you can expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your daily practice.
