Pathologie im Priesterseminar

Dear Colleagues, we appreciate to invite you for the fourth time to attend a breast screening pathology course including a histological slide seminar given by the European Working Group for Breast Screening Pathology (EWGBSP) in Germany.

What about the EWGBSP? This group of pathologists from several European countries was founded by the late Professor John Sloane from Liverpool in 1993 aiming more standardised pathological diagnostics of breast lesions in Europe. During the following years the group was involved in the production of the European guidelines for quality assurance in breast cancer screening and diagnosis supported by the EU commission. Today the group has 38 members from almost all European countries and is chaired by professor Cecily Quin from Dublin. One of the most important tasks of the EWGBSP is further development of the European guidelines for quality assurance in breast cancer screening and diagnosis. In 2013 the group published the Pathology update for the Supplements to the fourth edition of the EU guidelines. These Supplements take into account recent developments and will improve quality assurance before the publication of the next edition. In addition, the EWGBSP closely cooperates with the European Society of Breast Specialists (Eusoma). For example the EWGBSP helped to define certification criteria for breast units in Europe or the requirements for dedicated breast pathologists.

What kind of slide seminar will happen in Bamberg? Members of the group like to give whole day course and slide seminar on breast screening pathology. Using cases from daily practice the presenters will discuss typical problems in diagnosis as radiological pathological correlation, DCIS in mammography screening, B3 lesions and special aspects of screen detected invasive carcinomas.

The histological slides of all cases will be digitalized and you as attendees will have the opportunity to read them web-based as virtual slides before the seminar. We will collect your diagnoses in advance and they will be integrated in the discussion of every case by the presenting specialist. We will produce a handout with conceptual presentations as clinical data, figures, and diagnostic criteria of all cases which will be available for all attending colleagues on site, even electronically.

We are looking forward to see you in Bamberg and hope for fruitful discussions and new contacts!
