In this webinar, a series of clinical cases will be presented with the results of a pathology report (cytology and/or histology). Typical cases will be discussed alongside more challenging ones. It will also be an opportunity to share with clinicians what exactly it is that pathologists look at and for under the microscope. Cytological and histological images of some cases will be shared, with a brief discussion of the morphological features that are relied on when making a diagnosis.
Since nearly every diagnostic decision made by a pathologist has some degree of clinical impact, this interactive session will be an opportunity to give an insight into how the mind of a pathologist works
Also, since nearly every diagnostic decision made by a pathologist has some degree of clinical impact, this webinar provides an opportunity to get an insight into how the mind of a pathologist works. What are the types of questions that pathologists ask themselves when evaluating a case? How can a pathologist be certain that they are conveying the most clinically relevant information possible in their report? What is it that pathologists think that the clinician expects from them?
The final objective of this webinar is to strengthen the communication between pathologists and clinicians.
