Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a succinct overview of frozen section interpretation of benign and malignant central nervous system lesions. … This would be an excellent addition to any surgical pathologist’s library. The book is succinct and covers practical material for anyone who provides intraoperative consultations for neuropathology specimens. … an excellent quick reference and is unique in its focus on frozen section interpretation.” (Roger Dietz, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2011)

“The volume under review is dedicated to CNS frozen section intraoperative diagnosis. … It may be lightweight in size but not in content. This diminutive monograph contains a wealth of well-organized, accessible information, punctuated by copious colour micrographs and helpful tables. The authors have a wealth of experience to communicate and the comprehensive, knowledgably expressed content means this little textbook has every right to sit between those weightier tomes.” (Timothy Dawson, Neuropathology and Applied Neurobiology, Vol. 37, 2011)
