Bone, cartilage, and dental tumors can be "hard", in more ways than one. Our speakers will present a workshop based on material from the fourth volume of the series, Surgical Pathology of Tumors of Domestic Animals: Tumors of Bone, Cartilage and Other Hard Tissues. This meeting will target veterinary students, interns, residents, and anatomic pathologists involved in diagnostics. The conference will be organized into presentations and case-based interactive discussions with digital microscopy files available to registrants prior to the meeting. The presentations will cover preparation of bone and hard tissue sections, integration of immunohistochemistry, radiology and cytology into diagnosis, and key features of common bone, cartilage and hard tissue tumors. Case presentations will be used to illustrate the approach and diagnostic features of different bone and dental tumors.
