By determining the target of inflammation in the joint and the distribution of affected joints, a clinician can distinguish among non-inflammatory arthritis (osteoarthritis), other non-inflammatory rheumatic conditions (like fibromyalgia), and inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory synovitis (rheumatoid arthritis) and inflammatory enthesitis (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis).

I will discuss the clinical evaluation of a patient from initial finding of an abnormal chest imaging to diagnosis of lung cancer. CT scans of the chest often have abnormalities where some require urgent work up and others require later CT scans or even no follow up driven by the characteristics of the abnormalities and patient’s risk analysis. Work up of the Chest CT abnormalities differs based on its location and associated findings in mediastinal nodes and/or extrathoracic findings. Based on this analysis, different techniques of biopsy will apply often directed by the findings of a PT CT scan. The work up algorithm is designed to ensure that diagnosis is obtained using a strategy focused on determining a cancer’s stage and diagnosis using a single biopsy. Each biopsy method has unique attributes that pertain both to yield and complication rates that need to factor into the decision on how to biopsy. Finally, obtaining tissue diagnosis now requires molecular analysis of the tumor to dictate treatment decisions. Issues on appropriately obtaining adequate tissue samples are discussed.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer among men and women. The incidence is declining in large part due to increased screening, and the detection and removal of pre-cancerous polyps. This talk will discuss screening for CRC and polyps, including advantages and limitations of each option. The audience will hear about surveillance intervals based on findings at the index examination. Colonoscopy, the gold standard for screening, will be discussed along with potential reasons for missed polyps/interval cancers and quality indicators for colonoscopy. It is also important to explore and describe newer screening methods, including stool DNA testing and colon capsule screening.
