Intraoperative cytology of the female genital tract: an alternative to frozen sections?

The final BAC webinar of 2021 will be held on 15th December at 1.30pm



Intraoperative cytology is underused due to lack of experience of this technique amongst pathologists/BMSs combined with paucity of literature on how best to perform and interpret cells so obtained.

During this webinar Dr Ralte will focus on the technique of sampling for intraoperative cytology and use illustrative examples to highlight instances where this can play an invaluable role in the intraoperative surgical management of the patient.
