About the course
Lymphoid System Cytology
This comprehensive course will give you the basics you need for interpretation of the most common conditions affecting the lymphoid organs (mostly lymph nodes), with a special attention to the diagnostic approach to lymphoma in both dogs and cats. Participants will develop a logical approach to the interpretation of cytological samples from lymphoid organs through a case-based approach. Clinical case challenges and diagnostic algorithms will also be provided to help you understanding the concepts presented and consolidating your knowledge.
