Results of Frozen section
by various authors shows high diagnostic accuracy rate but sensitivity was relatively lower.
First, lung cancer screening is likely to increasingly uncover small or subsolid lesions that warrant resection but are difficult to identify by tactile or visual inspection during intraoperative frozen section
or even during gross evaluation for permanent sections, as demonstrated in Figure 4.
Our study, however, confirms the reliability of CNS squash cytology, and further, multicenter study with larger number of patients will make us confident of its value as a standalone intraoperative diagnostic procedure in resource-limited setting where frozen section
facility is not available.
Our results demonstrate that frozen section
examination is convenient for the evaluation of the ductal margin status for malignant or benign process.
The frozen section
procedure also called cryosection is a pathological laboratory procedure to perform rapid microscopic analysis of a specimen.
In conclusion, SGF should be kept in mind especially in young adults with long-term testicular swelling and frozen section
analysis can be used to prevent unnecessary orchiectomies.

analysis with suspected testicular malignancy," Urology, vol.
(iii) Intraoperative frozen section
assessment is helpful to establish the correct diagnosis and is essential for testicular sparing procedures.
We performed intraoperative frozen section
examination in all of the nodules to identify the histopathological diagnosis during surgery.
However, the report of clear margins on frozen section
does not guarantee that local recurrence will not occur nor does the report of positive frozen section
imply that recurrence is imminent.
Meanwhile, intraoperative frozen section
analyses that reveal caseous necrosis with granulomatous lesions can potentially prevent unnecessary oophorectomies in young women [17, 18].
Excision and sending the excised material for frozen section
control was performed once for 11 patients, twice for 12 patients, 3 times for 8 patients and 4 times for 4 patients to confirm that the surgical margins were clean.
