This self-assessment module (SAM) is based on an article that appeared in the March 2013 issue of Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine about the utility and diagnostic accuracy of ureteroscopic biopsy in upper tract urothelial carcinoma. It was developed by an expert in the field, Debra L. Zynger.
As a result of participating in this SAM eligible activity, you will be able to:
- Understand the clinical use and limitation of ureteroscopic biopsy for the diagnosis of upper tract urothelial carcinoma.
- Identify the specificity of upper tract ureteroscopic biopsy for the histopathologic diagnosis of urothelial carcinoma.
- Identify the sensitivity of upper tract ureteroscopic biopsy for the histopathologic diagnosis of urothelial carcinoma.
- Assess the histopathologic diagnostic accuracy of endoscopic biopsy specimens from the ureter, renal pelvis, and ureteropelvic junction.
- Describe the grade and pT classification concordance of ureteroscopic biopsy compared to surgical resection.

You have a total of three opportunities to take and pass the post-test. If you correctly answer 70% or more of the post-test items, you may claim credit. CME/SAM credit can be applied to the American Board of Pathology (ABP) Self-Assessment Module (SAM) requirements. The AMA requires that you pass the post-test in a enduring program to claim credit; therefore, if you do not pass, you cannot claim credit.
Attention Canadian Participants: You must complete all three attempts before claiming CPD credit (self-assessment program credits).
