    This webinar will discuss Ulcerative colitis; a chronic disease of the large intestine, in which the lining of the colon becomes inflamed and develops tiny open sores, or ulcers.

    Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease of the large intestine, in which the lining of the colon becomes inflamed and develops tiny open sores, or ulcers. About 1 million people in the United States have this disease, and it can impact daily living if not treated. This session will explore the histopathology of ulcerative colitis.

    This webinar will discuss using 42 combinations of deep learning models, image data preprocessing techniques, and hyperparameter configurations, with accuracy testing of tumor versus normal classification using the Breast Cancer Histology (BACH) dataset.

    Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. With early diagnosis, some breast cancers are highly curable. However, the concordance rate of breast cancer diagnosis from histology slides by pathologists is unacceptably low. Classifying normal versus tumor breast tissues from breast histology microscopy images is an ideal case to use for deep learning and could help to more reproducibly diagnose breast cancer. This webinar will discuss using 42 combinations of deep learning models, image data preprocessing techniques, and hyperparameter configurations, with accuracy testing of tumor versus normal classification using the Breast Cancer Histology (BACH) dataset. Results of this process will be shared to demonstrate preprocessing and hyperparameter configurations have a direct impact on the performance of deep neural networks for image classification.

    There are commonly used histochemical staining techniques performed in the routine Histology laboratory on a daily basis. This presentation will be a basic review of these stains and the staining mechanisms. We will identify the stains and discuss the reagents.

    There are commonly used histochemical staining techniques performed in the routine Histology laboratory on a daily basis. This presentation will be a basic review of these stains and the staining mechanisms. We will identify the stains and discuss the reagents. We will address some troubleshooting basics and also some of the clinical indicators for the ordering of these stains. The stains discussed in this presentation will be: connective tissue stains, microorganism stains, carbohydrate stains and exogenous/endogenous pigment stains. This will be a nice review if one is preparing for the certification exam. There will be much information discussed.

Passionate about education, she helped create a lumpectomy course that uses breast tissue from consented autopsies to teach trainees how to approach the specimens. Heidi also lectures on grossing and tumor staging guidelines and regularly assists residents with autopsy by creating tutorial videos. Her greatest achievement? “Helping to expand the scope of practice for pathologists’ assistants. At Mayo Clinic, we pioneered a placenta rotation in which they not only perform the gross examination, but also preview the microscopy, consult cases, and prepare them for signout.”

    She holds her HT and has spent most of her career performing histology in the clinical setting. She has been in the community emergency response team (CERT) for the city of Nashua New Hampshire for 10 years. Emergency response is a family affair, as Megan’s husband is the director of emergency management for the city of Somerville MA, and one year for my birthday. He decided a good "gift idea" was to sign Megan up for the police citizens academy, which turned out to be very informative. When Megan is not in the lab she lives to swim and last fall she swam from Alcatraz Island back to San Francisco.  So, she now believe that the prisoners lived after their escaped! She has been an active NSH member, including the NSH health and Safety committee and is now part of the NSH Laboratory Webinar Program Team.

    This webinar session will discuss the development of Falloposcope, ad device designed for the early detection of ovarian cancer.

    Falloposcopy is the endoscopic examination of the fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes are challenging to access due to their deep location, small opening from the uterus, and lumen filled with epithelial-covered plicae. This session will discuss the development of Falloposcope, ad device designed for the early detection of ovarian cancer. Join our speakers on development journey for this device. This was first presented in 2020 as a poster at the NSH Convention. Ms. Rice was also featured in the 2021 edition of Women in Histology. 

    CEUs: This histology course is worth 1 continuing education credit. Course is available for 365 days from date of purchase.
