About Frozen Sections

During an operation, diseased tissue is taken to the frozen tissue lab directly from the operating room. While the patient is still on the table, the sample is quickly frozen and sliced, prepared on a slide, and placed under the microscope for review.

Referred to as frozen section interpretation or inter-operative consultation, the routine use of this procedure can reduce re-operations by 25% in breast cancer.But it can also present one of the most challenging situations for a pathologist.Because the patient is in the operating room under anesthetic3, a pathologist must be present during surgery. This requirement frequently demands costly and time-consuming late-night trips to the operating room.4 

Our Solutions

Live telemicroscopy can ensure that a pathologist is always available to read a frozen section slide, no matter where they are. The on-site presence of an L5 or SL5 instrument allows the pathologist to remotely access the frozen section sample and provide essential information for the surgeon.
