What’s New and Exciting for 2019

  • Updated staging and reporting of tumors based on recent changes in the AJCC 8th edition of Cancer Staging
  • A session devoted to new entities in bone and soft tissue neoplasia
  • Emerging therapies for sarcoma treatment

 

General Information:

Lesions of soft tissue and bone are often considered difficult by pathologists because of their relative rarity and extensive diversity of subtypes. Mesenchymal lesions are also associated with a range of different prognoses and patient treatment options ranging from a “do nothing” approach to major surgery and adjuvant chemo or radiation therapies. With sarcoma the stakes are high and the biopsy is often small. The mission of this course is to provide practicing pathologists with a framework with which to approach the diagnoses of these challenging tumors. In this course the faculty will provide a comprehensive review of mesenchymal tumors of soft tissue and bone. In addition to morphologic features, the faculty will discuss how to incorporate immediately available resources (clinical information and imaging features) as well as ancillary tests (immunohistochemical, cytogenetic and molecular tests) into a paradigm to facilitate an accurate and precise diagnosis. Where appropriate, the faculty will discuss the role of cytologic and small biopsy diagnoses as well as the issues of cost, patient safety, and best utilization of resources involved in diagnoses by small or cutting needle core biopsies.

 

The faculty will include in their presentations updates on some of the most recent insights into the pathogenesis of sarcoma, and how these have been rapidly translated into useful adjuncts to diagnosis. In addition, there will be ample opportunity for participant engagement using a combination of traditional didactic format with audience participatory features. The course director and faculty will also provide the audience with resources for accessing more recent, less widely adopted ancillary tests and technologies that are emerging as useful adjuncts to contemporary practice.
