Clinical Pathology - Hong Kong

Dr. Jennifer Brazzell, DVM, Dipl.ACVP is a 2000 graduate of the University of Saskatchewan Western College of Veterinary Medicine. She was formerly a practicing veterinarian and co-owner of two small animal/exotics practices in Canada. She completed her Clinical Pathology residency at the University of Minnesota in 2005 and achieved diplomate status with the American College of Veterinary Pathology the same year. She worked as a diagnostic clinical pathologist for 5½ years before returning to her alma mater to pursue a second residency and graduate studies in Anatomic Pathology in 2010. In addition to her studies, she continues to work as a diagnostic clinical pathologist for Axiom Veterinary Laboratories. Her interests include tick-borne diseases, coagulation, and hematopathology. She has published several scientific papers on these and other topics and has run and participated in several VIN and VSPN Rounds sessions on in-house quality assurance, hematology, and cytology.

Lectures

Body Cavity and Joint Effusions : Causes, Collection, Analysis, and Interpretation

This all inclusive lecture will cover body cavity effusions from beginning to end. The lecture will focus on the major pathophysiologic mechanisms behind effusion formation and how to couple specific effusion properties to each mechanism. Being able to pair effusion properties to the mechanisms that cause them will allow you rapidly narrow your list of differential diagnoses for each type of effusion and more efficiently diagnose and treat your patient.

Interpretation of Common Endocrinologic Tests

Do you find "Stimulation Tests" such as the ACTH stimulation test particularly unstimulating? Do you find "Challenge Tests" such as the bile acid challenge test particularly challenging? This lecture will cover interpretation of most common endocrinologic tests including how to interpret and what to do about those pesty "equivocal" test results we all run in to from time to time.

Common Laboratory Myths

True or False? The presence of circulating peripheral blood mast cells indicates my patient has mast cell leukemia. Results from my in house laboratory analyzers are accurate. My patient's blood results are all within normal limits so my patient must not be diseased. If you answered True to any of these questions you should definitely attend this seminar! Laboratory myths are passed down from professor to student, practice owners to associates and so on but just because it is a "common truth" does not mean it is true! This session will focus on debunking common laboratory myths.

Systems Based Approach to the Biochemical Panel

A panel of 20 biochemical tests can be daunting when disorganized, especially when there are multiple abnormal values. This lecture will focus on how to organize the interpretation of a complete biochemical panel using a systems based approach thus enabling you to make a quick and accurate diagnosis.

Venue : Mariners' Club, 11 Middle Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui
