Recognize the indications for anatomic pathology methods in the diagnosis of viral diseases; 
Novel and emerging viral diseases frequently have variably severe clinical manifestations which present enormous challenges to both laboratorians and clinicians.  In the course of this session, we will explore cytopathology, histopathology, and related methodologies in the diagnosis of viral infections.  Tissue sampling techniques range from exfoliative cytology, aspiration cytology, biopsy, and resection.  The respective sampling methods can impact the ability to arrive at a definitive diagnosis and this will be explored.  When viral infection is suspected, tissue may then be subjected to ancillary techniques in anatomic pathology in order to gain additional information about virus(es) involved.  The advantages and limitations of the respective procedures, specimen types, and ancillary methodologies will be explored to enhance participants understanding.
Upon completion of the webinar, the participant should be able to: 

  • Understand the benefits and limitations of tissue assessments for viral infections; and
  • Identify appropriate utilization of ancillary methods in the diagnosis of viral infections.
