Presentation date: March 22, 2011; Expires: March 22, 2014
A pattern-recognition approach to the diagnosis of various soft tissue tumors will be presented.

The importance of proper tissue triage for ancillary studies and awareness of diagnostic pitfalls for soft tissue tumors in each pattern will be emphasized.
