Pathologic Assessment and Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Overview

This live CME program will be presented as a case-based educational satellite symposium to the 2020 Tutorial on Neoplastic Hematopathology and will focus on optimizing pathologic assessment for patients with AML. A multidisciplinary panel of oncology pathologists and a medical oncologist familiar with practicing in a collaborative environment will update pathologists with the latest information regarding diagnostic guidelines in AML, emerging targeted treatment strategies, and the application of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in clinical practice. Relevant clinical cases will be reviewed and a discussion of recent diagnostic updates and data that could advance the treatment of AML in the context of current treatment paradigms will ensue. As understanding of the pathobiology of AML continues to evolve, the role of the pathologist in executing testing to guide the use of novel treatment strategies will continue to expand.
