Current Approaches to Lymphoma Testing in the Cytogenetics Laboratory

From the 2020 Joint Annual Meeting (June 30, 2020)
Presented by Jennifer Sanmann, PhD, FACMG
Conventional cytogenetics and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) studies are routinely used for diagnostic and prognostic purposes in lymphoma. This presentation will provide insight into the processing, analysis, and interpretation of lymphoma cytogenetics in current practice. In addition, strategies for FISH testing and interpretation will be discussed.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the major types and subtypes of lymphoma
  2. Associate hallmark cytogenetic changes with various subtypes of lymphoma
  3. Develop appropriate cytogenetic and FISH testing strategies for lymphoma subtypes
