Learn the Latest Best Practices

Using both routine microscopic examination and immunohistochemistry, this online CME program outlines best practices for specimen handling and reporting, defined diagnostic criteria, improved recognition of less common diagnostic entities, and accurate interpretation of ancillary studies. Along with defining the role of newer adjunctive molecular tests, this breast pathology CME course will also help you to better:

  • Classify proliferative breast, in situ, papillary, fibroepithelial, spindle cell, and vascular lesions
  • Make the distinction between invasive and in situ lesions
  • Identify a variety of uncommon benign and malignant lesions
  • Understand guidelines for reporting prognostic and predictive factors
