Abstract

The technical and professional issues that affect the clinical utility of intraoperative frozen section diagnosis in head and neck surgery are addressed from a quality assurance perspective. The most common reasons for sampling errors and interpretive errors are discussed. We offer several recommendations for head and neck surgeons and pathologists which will optimize the clinical utility of intraoperative frozen section consultation.
