This online Neuropathology Program uses digital imaging technology and features a mini-symposium followed by eight educational neuropathology cases. Participants are asked to read the clinical case summaries with neuropathology findings, view applicable digital images, and indicate their answers to case questions provided for each case. There is also a 20-question post-test and printable PDFs containing the information and images from each case.

After completing this SAM eligible activity and post-test, you should be able to:

  1. Recognize clinical and neuroimaging characteristics that facilitate clinicopathologic correlation of neoplastic and nonneoplastic lesions of the nervous system, including muscle and nerve.
  2. Discuss gross, cytologic and histologic features that help define a preliminary differential diagnosis.
  3. Identify ancillary tests including but not limited to, special stains, immunohistochemistry and molecular testing, that help to confirm diagnosis and predict prognosis or influence therapeutic interventions.
