Wisconsin Society of Pathology 2019 Annual Conference

Waukesha, WI US
April 27, 2019

This activity is designed to educate pathologists on new available immunohistochemistry as well as molecular updates that can aid them in making a diagnosis and using additional tests to aid in treatment for some patients. Each laboratory has different immunohistochemical tests available to them.  This conference is designed to help them choose which markers are most effective to use in various situations as well as which markers they may want to incorporate or validate within their laboratory.  One barrier may be the cost to bring on a new test and this conference would be useful in helping a laboratory decide if the test would be useful for them.  In addition to immunohistochemistry.  This course is provided to help pathologists learn what additional testing may be useful to oncologists to provide patient specific care such as what molecular test may be used for a certain tumor type.
