A Practical and Contemporary Approach to Soft Tissue Tumor Pathology

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8  |  9:00 AM – 5:00 PM  |  IN-PERSON  |  6.00 CME CREDITS

Join our team of renowned experts on Sunday, October 8, as they present a practical approach to soft tissue tumor pathology. Faculty will provide a contemporary update through didactic, case-based, and interactive approaches to facilitate learning. This full-day course will cover a broad range of challenging topics encountered in surgical pathology practices.

Topics include spindle cell tumors, pleomorphic and round cell sarcomas, and adipocytic and vascular neoplasms, as well as special topics such as pediatric tumors and mesenchymal neoplasms of the head and neck. Throughout the course, faculty will emphasize the judicious application of immunohistochemistry (introducing recently developed diagnosis markers) and the role of molecular diagnostics.

This course will also feature interactive exercises illustrating diagnostic approaches to other selected topics in soft tissue tumor pathology, including myxoid soft tissue tumors, acral mesenchymal tumors, and next-generation sequencing.

This advanced-level, full-day course targets general surgical pathologists with exposure to diagnosing soft tissue tumors.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop a strategy to distinguish among soft tissue tumors with prominent myxoid stroma.
  • Apply immunohistochemistry for the differential diagnosis of head and neck soft tissue tumors and spindle cell sarcomas.
  • Identify immunohistochemistry and molecular techniques for the differential diagnosis of pediatric fibroblastic tumors.
  • Apply immunohistochemistry to aid in the diagnosis of recently described soft tissue tumors, novel markers to aid in the diagnosis of vascular tumors, the differential diagnosis of round cell sarcomas, and adipocytic tumors.
  • Recognize the key histologic features of fascicular spindle cell sarcomas, round cell sarcomas, recently described soft tissue tumors, and mesenchymal neoplasms with a predilection for the head and neck.
  • Identify key histologic features to distinguish among vascular neoplasms.
  • Analyze the key clinical and histologic features of pediatric fibroblastic tumors.
  • Identify the contemporary classification of adipocytic neoplasms.
  • Order next-generation sequencing in select circumstances to help diagnosis soft tissue tumors.

Continue your learning through the holidays! CAP22 attendees have access to the cutting-edge course materials and on-demand recordings till January 31, 2023.

CAP23 Abstract Program

The CAP23 Abstract Program is designed to promote a broad range of research in pathology. Submissions will be accepted beginning January 9th through March 10th.

Beyond Normal Limits: Uplifting Inclusivity Within Laboratory Medicine

The discussion will cover deriving inclusive reference intervals representative of gender and race diversity, evaluate the clinical laboratory as a key stakeholder in propagating change, and elaborate on the responsibility pathologists and medical scientists have in mitigating negative implications of scientific “isms.”

Can You Bank on Your Blood Supply: Using Blood Wisely and in Shortages


Matthew Karafin, MD, FCAP and Glenn E. Ramsey, MD, FCAP will synthesize multidisciplinary transfusion practice recommendations for all blood components into a logical framework applicable to blood management programs, and electronic guidance for blood ordering. Participants will use audience response technology to share benchmarking information on their current practices and learn how to apply up-to-date guidelines.
