34 th E. T. Bell

Fall Pathology Symposium

October 2, 2009

Mayo Memorial Auditorium

University of Minnesota East Bank Campus

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Presented by

E. T. Bell Institute of Pathology

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology


Dear Colleague:

We are proud to present the 34th E. T. Bell Fall Pathology Symposium. On the

recommendation of previous course attendees and after careful review of potential

conflicting activities and dates, we have moved the Bell Symposium one month earlier.

In this fashion out-of-state visitors will be able to fully enjoy the beauty of Minnesota in

the Fall and there will be no need to bring heavy coats to the meeting.

This year's "Bell" will delve into recent advances in our knowledge of the pathology of

bone and soft tissues. As has become evident in recent years, the pathologist who used

to practice in isolation and at-a-distance is a thing of the past. Today the pathologist

must be an active member of an interdisciplinary team, fully aware of his or her own

role, as well as the contributions of other members of the team. Following this

approach, host faculty will cover relevant aspects of the molecular biology, radiologic

diagnosis of tumors, recent advances and current status of the surgical, medical and

radiation therapy of sarcomas of bone and soft tissues. Guest faculty will share their

expertise on new and evolving entities in soft tissue pathology, the skeleton in health

and disease, and the differential diagnosis of epithelioid and cartilaginous tumors.

We look forward to seeing you at this symposium and trust that you will find it

intellectually stimulating and helpful in your daily practice. The symposium will take

place at the Mayo Auditorium, in the Academic Health Center. As is customary, it will be

followed the next day by the Fall Seminar of the Minnesota Society of Pathologists, this

year presented by Drs. Nielsen and Folpe, who kindly agreed to participate in the E.T.

Bell Symposium as well.

Sincerely,

J. Carlos Manivel, M.D.

STATEMENT OF NEED

The symposium will present recent advances in the field of bone and soft tissue

pathology. The presentations will emphasize the need for an interdisciplinary approach

to diagnosis and treatment, and will focus on recently described entities, diagnostic

criteria, differential diagnosis and the impact of our diagnoses on prognosis and

therapeutic procedures.

AUDIENCE

This conference would be ideal for practicing anatomic and clinical Pathologists,

Orthopaedic Surgeons, adult and pediatric Oncologists, Radiologists and Radiation

Therapists.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Following this conference, participants should be able to:

• Discuss newly recognized entities in bone and soft tissue pathology.

• Describe the nosology of these entities in updated classifications.

• Discuss the morphologic criteria used in recognition of these entities.

• Recognize the role of the pathologist as a member of the clinical team and the

importance of interactions with other members of the team.

• Identify common pitfalls in the differential diagnosis of epithelioid and

cartilaginous tumors.

• Describe how recent advances in molecular biology can explain certain aspects of

the pathobiology of these tumors and how they can be used to confirm a diagnosis

or to establish differential diagnoses.
