Kap Europa, convention center Messe Frankfurt, Osloer Straße 5, Frankfurt am Main, 60327, Germany
13 June 2019 - 15 June 2019Summary
The main topics of the annual meeting under the motto "Yes, we care": endocrine / neuroendocrine pathology, transplantation pathology, precision oncology, history of pathologyOverview
The motto of the 103rd annual conference of the German Society for Pathology in Frankfurt am Main, "Yes, we care", is primarily intended to indicate the responsibility pathology carries in modern medicine. This applies in particular to the four topics of the annual conference:
The 2017 edition of the WHO classifications of endocrine tumors introduced a number of important changes, such as the reassessment of the biological behavior of various endocrine / neuroendocrine tumors. However, the concept of "low malignancy neoplasms", which saves the patient from the onerous diagnosis of "cancer", can only be successful if pathology classifies these tumors appropriately and responsibly.
The second topic focuses on transplantation pathology; through groundbreaking new procedures, even qualitatively marginal organs can now be successfully transplanted. There are completely new ways here. This topic also has a great sociopolitical dimension due to the current discussion on remedying organ shortages in Germany.
The paramount role of pathology with all its facets in precision oncology is addressed in the third theme. The point of "preanalytics", the optimal handling of sample material, will play a proven role in this; This topic should also be of particular interest to the occupational group of medical-technical assistants.
A special focus of this annual conference will be devoted to the history of pathology. Among other things, an exhibition on the first results of the research project on the role of pathology in the years 1933 - 1945 is planned here.
