Onco-pathology: diagnose a biopsy

oncopathologieDepartment:   Oncology, UMCG
Supervisor:     Prof. Harry Hollema MD PhD

Despite the introduction of sophisticated techniques in modern pathology, macroscopic interpretation of resection specimens remains a cornerstone in the daily practice of surgical pathology. After a short introduction regarding the role of pathology in oncologic patient care and basic terminology the participants will be asked to interpret five macroscopic specimens from surgical resections. Questions will be focused on the most likely diagnosis, carcinogenesis and T stage in relation to prognosis and therapy. Four pathologists will be present to assist and answer questions during the workshop.
