What did you find valuable, or how did you benefit from this activity?
learning a more systematic approach to reporting pulmonary cytology cases I enjoyed learning about the new classification system and terminology that's coming for lung cytology cases. good update and review of the topic, with clear categories of diagnostic criteria Learning about the most current practice in classifying pulmonary lesions. The discussion of the rationale behind the categories was helpful, especially with regard to pancreatic endocrine tumors good update Great discussion on how to process specimens for molecular pathology
