CheckPath Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma Activity

To promote continued learning and growth for pathologists participating in the live or virtual educational session, ASCP has developed a set of CheckPath exercises relating to Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma. The activity provides a way for pathologists to enhance their understanding regarding the diagnosis and management of Peripheral T-cell Lymphomas.

The CheckPath Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma educational activity is a combination virtual slide/digital image-based assessment program in which 11 cases of peripheral T-Cell-Lymphoma-diagnostic entities are presented online. Participants will receive peer-reviewed interpretations for each case and demographically-based laboratory and individual participant reports with peer-to-peer comparisons. In addition, participants will be eligible to earn up to 11 CME or Self-Assessment Module (SAMs CME) credits and meet requirements for the American Board of Pathology’s (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV Evaluation of Performance in Practice. Upon answer submission, each participant will receive a full diagnostic interpretation focusing on differential diagnoses.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize abnormal T-cell morphology in peripheral blood, lymph node, skin and other extranodal tissue incorporating clinical features and generate a differential diagnosis for its presence.
  • Describe and apply criteria used to diagnose selected T-cell lymphomas as outlined in the 2008 WHO Classification.
  • Interpret results of ancillary tests used to establish a diagnosis of T-cell lymphoma and discuss their significance in prognosis and therapy.
