 en INTRA-OPERATIVE FROZEN SECTION CONSULTATION: CONCEPTS, APPLICATIONS AND LIMITATIONS
Hasnan Jaafar

Abstract

Intra-operative frozen section plays an important role in the management of surgical patients and yet it must be used prudently to avoid the indiscriminate usage of this important technique. As it is subjected to many limitations in comparison to the paraffin embedded tissue sections, this review aims to highlight the important concepts and principle of intra-operative frozen section consultation as well as discussing the limitations of this technique. This will then allow the endusers of this technique to be more informed and more selective in their decisions when requesting for a frozen section report.
