About this book

Frozen sections are performed while a patient is undergoing surgery as a basis for making an immediate diagnosis that will impact treatment decisions. Frozen section diagnosis is often a highly demanding situation for the pathologist who must render a diagnosis quickly for the patient and surgeon. The Frozen Section Library series will provide concise, user-friendly, site specific handbooks that are well illustrated and highlight the pitfalls, artifacts and differential diagnosis issues that arise in the hurried frozen section scenario. Qihui "Jim" Zhai, MD, FCAP, is Professor of Pathology, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH. He is also Attending Pathologist at Greater Cincinnati Pathologists, Inc., Cininnati, OH.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a focused reference of the most common and most harrowing conditions that the pathologist faces when confronted with intraoperative diagnosis of head and neck lesions. … The intended audience is surgical pathologists and pathologists in training who perform frozen sections, and the surgeons and surgery residents who rely on frozen section results. … This is a well-illustrated, brief … practical addition to the library of any surgical pathologist who deals with frozen section diagnosis of head and neck lesions.” (Paul St. Romain, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2011)
