USCAP 2020: PANCREATOBILIARY PATHOLOGY COMPANION SOCIETY PROGRAM
Cystic and Intraductal Neoplasms of the Pancreatobiliary Tract When: February 29, 2020. 7-10PM Location: Los Angeles Convention Center
Moderators: Martha Bishop Pitman Deepti Dhall
Speakers: Jin-Young Jang: Management Algorithms for Pancreatic Cysts and Intraductal Neoplasms: The Surgeon’s Perspective Michelle D. Reid: Cytologic Assessment of Cystic/Intraductal Lesions of the Pancreatobiliary Tract Aatur D. Singhi: Preoperative Molecular Assessment of Pancreatic Cysts and Intraductal Lesions David S. Klimstra: Mucinous Cystic and Intraductal Neoplasms of the Pancreatobiliary Tract Irene Esposito: Non-mucinous Cystic Lesions of the Pancreas
Despite numerous advances in the field, the diagnosis, classification, grading, and management of cystic and intraductal lesions of the pancreatobiliary tract remain controversial. Additionally, recently described entities such as intraductal tubulopapillary neoplasm (ITPN) and intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) remain diagnostically challenging, and their prognostic implications are poorly understood. The mission of the Pancreatobiliary Pathology Society is to educate surgical and cytopathologists on the importance of the advances in this complex area and will hopefully transform the way we practice pancreatobiliary pathology. The Education Committee, in consultation with Society officers, determined the title, contents, and speakers of this companion meeting.
The chosen topics represent a 360-degree expert evaluation of cystic and intraductal pancreatobiliary lesions in the step-wise manner in which they are often encountered, from the surgeon’s perspective, to their cytomorphologic and molecular characteristics, as well as their histomorphology.
We are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to serve? We will have two open positions on the Education Committee and two open positions on the Membership/Website Committee. Applicants must be a member (regular, associate or emeritus) who has paid annual dues (only $50/year for regular members). The 2-year term will begin after USCAP 2020. If you are interested, please reply with the information (indicate with a “X”) below along with your CV to Vince Hoang (email@example.com) by February 14, 2020.
