The 2009 American Society for Clinical Pathology Annual Meeting began yesterday in Chicago, Illinois. This meeting will run until November 1st. This year, the theme is "Connecting People with the Future of Pathology Today."
I'm not in Chicago for the conference, but I'm quite interested to see what types of advances are occurring in the pathology lab. As technology revolutionizes how we're able to diagnose diseases, I wonder what types of trends we'll see in the worlds of clinical pathology, surgical pathology, and cytopathology.
The mission of the American Society for Clinical Pathology is to provide excellence in education, certification, and advocacy on behalf of patients, pathologists, and laboratory professionals.
