Course Description
The evolution of gastrointestinal pathology coincident with development of endoscopy and mucosal biopsies has revolutionized management of patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Virtually every part of the tubular gut is now amenable to visualization and sampling. High-resolution cross-sectional imaging routinely detects asymptomatic tumors in patients under surveillance for chronic liver disease. This intensely focused course, presented by a spectacular faculty, will help pathologists generate comprehensive and accurate differential diagnoses for a variety of inflammatory and neoplastic disorders based on limited biopsy material.

Target Audience
Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training
