Overview

Frozen sections of the pancreas are performed to assess resectability, for tissue confirmation and to assess margins. The clinical implications of an accurate frozen section diagnosis are dramatic as far as type and extent of surgery performed.

"Frozen Section of the Pancreas" will provide a concise pictorial compendium to facilitate intraoperative consultations on pancreas specimens. The book will be 5x8 and is estimated to be 200-250 pages with 100-150 color figures. This user-friendly handbook will be divided into chapters that emphasize the common questions a pathologist must answer on frozen section examination and will provide guidance for the differential diagnosis of various histologic patterns.

The purpose of this book is to aid in the timely frozen section diagnosis of pancreatic lesions by using a broad array of illustrations, which would reinforce one’s visual memory, and a condensed text, useful for rapid review of main diagnostic features.

Currently, there is no other up-to-date, single-source reference specifically focused on frozen sections of the pancreas.
