The department of Onco pathology have following facilities:
- FROZEN SECTION
- Histopathology and IHC
- Bone Marrow Examinations
- All types of Haematological Examination
In Sugical Oncology, treatment of malignant tumors involves the excision of tumor with 1 cm margin of normal tissue around the tumor- this is termed as clear margin. Failure to achieve this reduces the chance of local control ( for radiotherapy) and recurrence can be expected
To overcome this proble, frozen section analysis is undertaken from the mucosol and deep surfacees of the defect then intraoperatively; and if the tumor remains then further resection is undertaken at the time of primary resection.
