Soft Tissue Cancer-IHC Webinar

 


 What Does it Cover?

Soft tissue tumors are a broad group of neoplasms that involve the connective tissue of the body. Each year, over 13,000 people in the US are diagnosed with soft tissue sarcomas and over 5,000 people succumb to the malignancy. Because soft tissue sarcomas are very ambiguous and amorphous, many time sarcomas are classified as an uncertain type. Advances in immunohistochemistry as well as the utility of novel markers such as TFE3, TLE1, MyoD1, and MUC4 have aided pathologists in classifying these soft tissue tumors. This discussion will cover the key facts and statistics about soft tissue tumors and what role IHC plays in these difficult diagnoses.
