High Intensity Interval Training in GI Pathology: Not for the Faint of Heart
The evolution of gastrointestinal pathology coincident with development of endoscopy and mucosal biopsies has revolutionized management of patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Virtually every part of the tubular gut is now amenable to visualization and sampling. High-resolution cross-sectional imaging routinely detects asymptomatic tumors in patients under surveillance for chronic liver disease. This intensely focused course, presented by a spectacular faculty, will help pathologists generate comprehensive and accurate differential diagnoses for a variety of inflammatory and neoplastic disorders based on limited biopsy material.
Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training
Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will be able to:
- Recognize and classify dysplasia in the setting of Barrett’s esophagus
- Distinguish diagnostic features of medication and pathogen-related intestinal injury in the immunocompromised host
- Formulate a differential diagnosis for sprue-like lesions of the small bowel
- Distinguish invasive adenocarcinoma from mimics in biopsy material
- Classify patterns of hepatic injury
