 Conference Program Outline
  • Comprehensive CBC Review
This comprehensive review will guide participants through interpretation of all aspects of the CBC, including the erythrogram, leukogram, and thrombogram. An emphasis will be placed on making and interpreting blood smears in conjunction with CBC data.
 
  • Comprehensive Urinalysis Review
Urine can be a highly labile sample, and thorough in-house interpretation can increase accuracy of results. This lecture will review acquisition, processing and interpretation of urine. An emphasis will be placed on interpretation of dipstick results, and microscopic evaluation of sediment, including classification of crystals, casts and organisms, and their clinical significance.
 
  • Cytology in Practice
These lectures will cover all the essential skills for performing high quality cytology in clinical practice, from sample acquisition and preparation to interpretation. Common samples including skin masses, body cavity fluids, ear cytology and fecal analysis will be emphasized.
