Johns Hopkins Clinical Update

Improve clinical performance with this authoritative review of the latest concepts and techniques in the interpretation of gastrointestinal and liver specimens.

Improve Your Ability to Interpret Gastrointestinal and Liver Specimens

This recording of Johns Hopkins’ 17th Annual Current Topics in Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology event delivers a practical overview for pathologists who encounter gastrointestinal and liver specimens in daily practice. Interpretation of biopsies of the upper GI tract mucosa and the liver will be addressed, as well as recent advances in pancreatic and biliary pathology. Participants should come away with a better understanding of interpretation of mucosal biopsies, liver biopsies, pancreatic/biliary disorders, and the application of modern techniques to gastrointestinal disorders.
