One-Day Digital Conference to Explore Updates and Practical Approaches in Breast Pathology

Toronto Skyline at twilight

Breast cancer continues to be one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers among Canadian women, with an estimate of 25% of new cases in 2020 alone[1]. This requires those in the field of breast pathology to remain up-to-date with the latest information.

Join us on October 30, 2020 for the Pathology Update, on our digital conference platform. This year’s conference, Breast Pathology: Practice Approach and Emerging Issues, features engaging discussions on topics covering the spectrum of breast pathology to keep Pathobiologists, Anatomic, and Surgical Pathologists informed. Along with expert faculty from the University of Toronto, our distinguished guest speakers this year are Dr. Anita Bane, McMaster University and Dr. Benjamin Calhoun, UNC School of Medicine.

Through a case-based discussion, Dr. Bane will provide an update on practical tips to appraise and sign-out the spectrum of fibroepithelial lesions of the breast. Dr. Calhoun will first discuss atypical intraductal proliferations, touching on the application of diagnostic criteria in core needle biopsy specimens. He will also present on the various challenging diagnoses in breast core needle biopsies, with a focus on morphologic and immunohistochemical features of atypical glandular proliferations.

Be sure to catch the popular Interesting Cases at the end of the day! Both Dr. Bane and Dr. Calhoun, along with Gulisa Turashvili and Kiran Jakate will each present one of four breast pathology cases throughout the hour as a wrap up to the conference.

All of this will be happening on the new digital conference platform allowing learners ample opportunity to discuss cases directly within each session, test their knowledge with audience response questions, and network through both video and chat features with fellow attendees.
