AGENDA

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE AGENDA!

 

OVERVIEW

Reflectance Confocal Microscopy (RCM) has been well-established as a diagnostic tool for diagnosing various skin lesions, and monitoring treatment, but has failed to gain traction in the United States simply due to a lack of opportunity for specialty training in reading RCM Images and how to successfully incorporate RCM into daily practice. NIDIskin is proud to offer the original basic comprehensive course where attendees will achieve basic proficiency in interpreting confocal images, distinguishing melanocytic versus non-melanocytic lesions, and will be able to conclusively distinguish between lesions that require removal and those that do not. For the first time, non-beginners will be offered advanced courses on the use of RCM for treatment monitoring and further integration of RCM into their practice.

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

This activity is designed for dermatologists, pathologists, and dermatopathologists.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

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

  • Discuss current in vivo modalities for diagnosing skin neoplasms
  • Recognize RCM features of common skin neoplasms
  • Distinguish confocal features of melanocytic lesions from non-melanocytic lesions
  • Diagnose benign vs. malignant lesions based on confocal images
  • Differentiate inflammatory conditions like eczema, psoriasis, lichen planus, and lupus based on RCM
