Vanguard – Complex Liver Cases – January 2024
ILTS invites you to the January 19th Vanguard Webinar on Complex Liver Cases organized by the ILTS Vanguard Committee
Complex Liver Cases
Liver Transplantation Pathology: Snapshots of Cases
January 19, 2024
9 am EST
Ever wanted a deeper understanding of pathology? The Vanguard Committee presents a novel webinar to educate members on important topics in pathology. This lecture/webinar is not targeted to pathologists, but rather catered to patient-fronting clinicians (hepatologists, transplant surgeons, and oncologists), and the content covered is essentially what a very experienced pathologist (with over 40 years of clinical service) hopes that non-pathology clinicians will pay attention to in a pathology report.
- In the context of liver transplantation (e.g., donor or recipient problems), when does a clinician know that he/she needs to make a phone call to pathologists to ‘discuss’ a case?
- What does it mean when a pathologist says that a case is ‘challenging’, and why do clinicians have to pay attention?
- Why and how do pathologists make diagnostic errors, and how can clinicians help to prevent errors or work with pathologists to arrive at the correct diagnosis more quickly, which could have positive implications on patient management?
To get the most out of our upcoming webinar, it is strongly recommended you view this background webinar which will give you the key pearls on how to best approach any liver allograft biopsy interpretation.
If you have an interesting case-based topic that you would like to present in an ILTS Vanguard Webinar, please fill in this electronic case submission form.
After the webinar, you will be able to view the recording on the ILTS education portal.
