Share this Webinar


Patients with abdominal and/or pleural effusions are commonly seen in everyday clinical practice. This webinar will provide you with a step-by-step approach in the analysis and interpretation of results and cytological findings of body cavity effusions. Updated information on how to maximise the capabilities of your in-clinic laboratory highlighting advantages and potential limitations will also be discussed. A significant part of the webinar will include the presentation and interactive discussion of clinical cases aiming to put in practice the principles presented during the earlier part of the webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Biochemical analysis and cellularity: Learn which tests you should be requesting from your external commercial laboratory, or which tests you can perform using your in-clinic instruments and which instruments can provide reliable results.
  2. Cytological examination: Learn how to prepare and stain good quality smears and how to perform a methodical microscopic examination in your clinic.
  3. Interpretation of laboratory test results and cytological findings: Improve your diagnostic skills in the interpretation of test results and cytological findings by participating in the interactive discussion of clinical cases.
