Lymph Node Cytology

Lymph Node Cytology – EFCS Joint Webinar of the Hellenic and the Croatian Societies of Clinical Societies, March 18, 2022





New on the ASC Education Website – Molecular Cytopathology Workshop

This online course provides organ-specific detailed molecular training, as well as general teaching on molecular assays and test selection. The course will empower cytopathologists to serve as experts in molecular cytopathology for both test selection and results interpretation.


In addition, following this course, cytopathologists can serve as an essential resource to guide oncologists, proceduralists, and surgeons on test utilization and interpretation.

ECC 2023 – 44th European Congress of Cytology, Budapest 1-4 October 2023

Dear Colleagues,We would like to inform you that the 44th European Congress of Cytology will be held in Budapest, Hungary, from 1-4 October 2023.

The homepage of the congress is already active: https://cytology2023.eu/

You are kindly invited to visit the homepage and sign up for the newsletter. We also request you to distribute the information among your members.The two leading mottos of the conference are „combined intelligence” and „melting point”.“The diagnosis by aspiration is as reliable as the combined intelligence of the clinician and pathologist makes it.” (Stewart, 1933). This statement is still true in the 21th century, in the century of data based combined natural and even artificial intelligence.The melting point of a substance is the temperature at which a solid and liquid phase may coexist in equilibrium. It is desirable the reach this equilibrium of different ideas and thoughts in all facets of cytopathology. The Congresses main purpose in finding the acceptable equilibria points following discussions, debates during sessions, slide seminars, Companion Meetings and every official and private exchange of thoughts – using everywhere the combined intelligence.By this letter we would like to invite all member countries to hold Companion Meetings at the congress.For the Companion Meetings the congress offers:A time slot of 45-60 minutes.A breakout room for 50-100 PAX equipped with general conference audio-visual technique (no microscopes).Advertising the meeting in the Scientific Program based on the information from the “Companion” on the website and in Final Program (on- and/or off-line)The Companions are kindly requested to:Inform us that they would like to organize a meeting, preferably before 30 September 2022.Compile the scientific contents of the meeting.Arrange for the registration of all speakers.We look forward to hearing from you soon and meeting you in Budapest next year.Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at scientific@cytology2023.eu

Este concurso é uma iniciativa com carácter global da Sociedade Americana de Citopatologia (American Society of Cytopathology – ASC), destinando-se a internos, fellows e citotécnicos e tendo como objectivo a partilha de conhecimento científico numa competição única que terá lugar na reunião anual da ASC.

Os candidatos a concurso deverão apresentar um caso interessante de citopatologia, que deverá incluir pontos práticos e/ou referencias a inovações em citomorfologia ou técnicas complementares, conforme o seguinte regulamento:

“The presenters, who would compete in the WCC, will present an interesting cytopathology case and would offer practical take-home points and/or new highlights on innovations in cytomorphology or ancillary techniques.

  • The contest is open to medical students, pathology residents, cytopathology fellows, cytotechnology students or a junior pathologist or cytotechnologist within one year of completion of training. The presenter is the first author of the proposal.
  • The submitted case must not have been published before the presentation at the ASC Annual Scientific Meeting. The five finalists will be chosen from five different countries.
  • The winner will be determined by a panel of judges based on the scientific content, presentation style and skills, and confidence when handling questions at the end of the presentation.
  • The five finalists will receive waived registration at the ASC Annual Scientific Meeting. The winner will get a wall plaque and a USD 250 cash award.
  • The first contest will be held during the American Society of Cytopathology 67th Annual Scientific Meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, November 14-17, 2019.”
