Part of the highly regarded Diagnostic Pathology series, this updated volume by Dr. Susan Lester is uniquely organized according to the specific questions from surgeons that a pathologist needs to address during time-limited intraoperative consultations.

  • New chapters include new techniques, such as image-guided lung resections, finding and safely handling radioactive seeds for breast biopsies, tissue banking techniques, nipple margin evaluation for nipple-sparing mastectomy, and evaluation of specimens from patients with epilepsy
