Introduction

This program of 13 state-of-the-art lectures is designed to expand your knowledge of neoplastic and non-neoplastic pancreatic lesions. It covers common and rare neoplasms, transplant pathology and lesions associated with alcohol abuse. It is designed to close the knowledge gap that exists in medical centers that do not see a high volume of pancreatobiliary lesions. The program will increase confidence in the interpretation of pancreatic specimens while highlighting critical diagnostic pitfalls. It is taught by faculty working at centers that see large numbers of patients with pancreatic disease and is ideal for pathologists and gastroenterologists looking to enhance their knowledge and diagnostic skills. The course will help you to better:

  • Recognize common and uncommon pancreatic lesions, including those associated with alcohol abuse
  • Interpret frozen sections
  • Discuss the biology of pancreatic ductal carcinoma, including molecular underpinnings and immunolabeling
  • Describe which pancreatic lesions are premalignant
  • Identify biliary tract lesions with confidence
  • Discuss pancreatic transplant pathology
