Target Audience 

This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate pathologists


Physicians: Educational Symposia is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Educational Symposia designates this enduring material for a maximum of 14.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

All CME course participants are required to pass a written or online test with a minimum score of 70% in order to be awarded credit. (Exam materials, if ordered, will be sent with your CME order.) All CME course participants will also have the opportunity to critically evaluate the program as it relates to practice relevance and educational objectives.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM for these programs may be claimed until May 14, 2021.
This CME activity was planned and produced by Educational Symposia, the leader in diagnostic imaging education since 1975.
This CME activity was planned and produced in accordance with the ACCME Essential Areas and Elements.

Educational Objectives 

At the completion of this CME activity, subscribers should be able to:

  • Differentiate benign breast disease and atypical proliferative lesions.
  • Discuss liver biopsies in the post-HCV era.
  • Achieve a better understanding of HER in GI malignancies and comparisons to breast.
  • Prepare for colon cancer and universal screening for Lynch syndrome.
  • Identify conditions to consider before surgical pathology subspecialty sign-out.
  • Discuss breast cancer predictive factor testing (ER, PR & HER2).
  • Analyze myxoid soft tissue tumors and peripheral nerve sheath tumors.
  • Identify key features of genomic testing in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Describe sclerosing lesions of the breast.
  • Discuss the utility of cytogenetic and FISH studies in workup of adipocytic lesions.
  • Review differential diagnoses and pitfalls in fatty tumors.
  • Review the appropriate use (and potential pitfalls) of MDM2 FISH studies in the work-up of a spindle cell malignancy in the retroperitoneum.
  • Discuss bone-forming and cartilage-forming soft tissue tumors, as well as sarcomas that may occasionally produce matrix.
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis of a spindle cell sarcoma with herringbone/fascicular growth.
  • Discuss peripheral nerve sheath tumors, fibrohistiocytic neoplasms and vascular lesions.
  • Review new entities such as soft tissue angiofibroma and biphenotypic sinonasal sarcoma.
  • Review entities such as fibroepithelial stromal polyp, cellular angiofibroma, mammary-type myofibroblastoma, angiomyofibroblastoma and aggressive angiomyxoma, as well as their mimics.
