Optimal Tissue Acquisition and Optimal Pathology Outcomes: Sharing Best Practice for Oncology Patients in the Era of Personalised Care. Supported by Astra Zeneca

21 July 2022
Venue - Online
CPD hours available

RANZCR is excited to announce the next upcoming webinar within RANZCR’s webinar Series.

Topic: Optimal Tissue Acquisition and Optimal Pathology Outcomes: Sharing Best Practice for Oncology Patients in the Era of Personalised Care


Proudly supported by Astra Zeneca
Thursday July 21 | 6:30−8:00pm AEST


Successful tissue acquisition is critical when determining suspected malignancy in a patient. In the era of precision care, appropriate tissue samples are essential to assess for specific biomarkers and the subsequent utility of evidence-based medicine. Interventional radiology is necessary to conduct tissue acquisition when surgery is not appropriate. Understanding the tissue pathway and requirements from a pathology perspective support the utility of precision care for patients with malignancy.


Learning Objectives:

  • Optimal technique for tissue acquisition
  • Management of challenging patient presentation
  • Tissue pathway from acquisition to pathology interrogation
  • Pathology requirements of tissue sampling to support optimal patient management
  • Best practice for collaborative radiology and pathology outcomes

Please pre submit any questions during registration which will be answered on the night. Alternatively, there will be a chat box available on the webinar platform for questions to be asked while the webinar is taking place.
