Intraoperative Pathology Consultation (Frozen)

The primary purpose of intraoperative pathology consultation is to guide immediate surgical management. It can provide surgeons with important information that may be used to modify or even terminate a surgical procedure. Frozen sections performed during this prosedure can also be used to establish the nature and extent of a lesion, to determine the status of surgical margins and to confirm that sampling of lesional tissue is sufficient for further investigations.
