Specimen Submission Guidelines: Frozen Sections Mobile App

The Specimen Submission Guidelines: Frozen Sections mobile app was designed to help define how to submit surgical pathology and cytology specimens to the Pathology Departments and how to arrange for an autopsy examination. All Clinic, Operating Rooms and Pathology Personnel are responsible for completing the app. The intra-operative frozen section is one of the most important procedures that the pathologist performs, and when effectively utilized can influence the course of an operation. GoCanvas has a Paper Meter for all Accounts
