Course Description: There will be an early morning “huddle”, where we will have pre-procedural case discussions with clinical presentations and imaging findings, approach to the procedure/biopsy, and consideration of which is the best imaging modality to be utilized. Further dialogue including the informed consent form, pre-anesthesia care, family counseling and literature search of interesting cases will also be performed. In appropriate cases, after the tissue is obtained, there will be interactive pathology slide preparation, discussion regarding the specimen findings and relevant differential diagnosis based on the clinical history and pathology/cytology findings.
A. Given a clinical case and imaging study, create a differential diagnosis
by disease mechanism that may include benign and malignant neoplasia,
infectious and inflammatory, degenerative, congenital, and vascular disorders.
