Fixation artefact in an intra-operative frozen section: a potential cause of misinterpretation

Andrew M Thomson, William Wallace

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The intra-operative histological assessment of fresh tissue can provide valuable diagnostic information and guide surgical management, however, even a limited exposure to standard fixation agents can potentially compromise analysis. Defined handling strategies should exist to facilitate the receipt of all specimens, in their optimal state, by the laboratory.
