USCAP’s event in Charleston, SC will feature five of the lead authors of the most relevant and recent guidelines in diagnostic cytopathology today:

  • Dr. Edmund Cibas for The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytology
  • Dr. Ritu Nayar for The Bethesda System for Reporting Cervical Cytology
  • Dr. William Faquin for the Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytology
  • Dr. Martha Bishop Pitman for The Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology System for Reporting Pancreaticobiliary Cytology
  • Dr. Eva Wojcik for The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology
  • Dr. Sara E. Monaco will address another hot topic, EBUS and molecular testing in lung cancer

This historic conference will give you a chance to “Ask the experts” and give you the tools you will need to implement these guidelines in your daily practice. Our experts will provide insights and expertise to help build your working knowledge for diagnostic cytopathology. Images and molecular testing will be presented in a clear and concise fashion.

Patient care is optimized when cytopathologists communicate their diagnostic findings effectively to clinicians and intelligibly to patients. A systematic reporting system that includes guidelines is an effective approach to this objective and represents a valiant effort to transfer valid information with clarity. Collaborative academic institutions have addressed reporting systems and guidelines for the uterine cervix, thyroid, salivary glands, pancreaticobiliary system and urine cytology.

Interwoven is information that will address professional practice gaps in current cytopathology procedures, adjunctive and molecular/genetic techniques and focus issues that will enhance community and academic practices.
