Dermatology 'Close Up': Melanoma and Other Neoplasms of the Skins 2013

  1. 1. COURSE DIRECTORS: James M. Grichnik MD, PhD Harold S. Rabinovitz, MD REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION: www.cme.med.miami.edu SPONSORED BY: University of Miami Miller School of Medicine PrEsented by: Department of Dermatology Dermatology “Close Up”: Melanoma and Other Neoplasms of the Skin 2013 November 9-10, 2013 The Alexander Hotel Miami Beach, Florida
  2. 2. OVERVIEW This certified CME course will review the current methods available to diagnose skin cancers as well as potential diagnostic tools. In addition, the course will offer a comprehensive review on some of these technologies, dermoscopy and confocal scanning laser microscopy. The Faculty will illustrate with didactic lectures, case studies and a workshop with hands-on practice in reading diagnostic images of selected cases. During the Shoot-Out session, participants will be given the opportunity to recall knowledge gained in the course and apply this knowledge by correctly identifying skin neoplasms. Participants will have the opportunity to practice and apply the knowledge gained through the previous lectures by interpreting images on selected images on selected dermoscopy and confocal cases. GAP ANALYSIS It is estimated that in 2013 there were 76,690 persons with invasive melanoma, 61,300 in situ melanomas, 3,000,000 basal cell carcinomas and 750,000 invasive squamous cell carcinomas. In addition, there were approximately 9,480 deaths due to melanoma. One person in the United States dies from skin cancer every hour. It costs more than one billion dollars a year in the treatment of skin cancer and ninety percent of the sum is due to advanced disease. By early recognition of skin cancers advanced disease can be reduced. By early recognition of skin cancers advanced disease can be reduced. The clinical ABCDE rule attempts to differentiate melanomas from benign pigmented skin lesions, and it serves as the basis for current clinical diagnosis. Unfortunately, the diagnostic accuracy for physicians is about 65% and it is often difficult to diagnose other pigmented neoplasms, both melanocytic and non-melanocytic, from melanomas. This has prompted research and development of in vivo diagnostic technologies to aid physicians in clinical practice. The most important part of melanoma care is early detection and surgical removal, but that approach does not prevent recurrence once melanomas become more advanced and tumor cells enter the circulation. There is a need for improved recognition of early melanoma while reducing unnecessary biopsies of benign nevi as well as a need to understand the mechanisms underlying melanocyte transformation. This educational activity will focus on improved understanding of early melanoma detection and the appplication of current and developing clinical tools. TARGET AUDIENCE The target audience includes dermatologists, pathologists and dermatopathologists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of melanoma. The topics will also be of interest to primary care physicians and other healthcare providers including nurse practitioners and physician assistants who are in the care and management of dermatologic conditions, as well as residents in training and medical students. LEARNING OBJECTIVES • Identify patients that will benefit from the use of current and future devices to differentiate benign from malignant neoplasms and enable them to employ some of these methods in their practice. • Outline the different features viewed with a dermatoscope, and apply this knowledge in making the diagnosis of various neoplasms. • Assess the specific dermoscopic features of melanoma and use the knowledge of pattern recognition to differentiate between benign nevi and malignant melanoma. • Identify the basic optical principles involved in imaging a lesion with the confocal microscope and basic operation of the device. • Interpret confocal features visualized with the instrument and differentiate benign and malignant neoplasms. • Identify RCM structures and patterns of nevi. • Identify RCM structures and patterns of of melanoma and differentiate these features benign nevi. • Recognize how confocal is used daily in practice for the process of examining skin neoplasms and how the information is utilized in making diagnoses and managing patient care. ACCREDITATION The University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
