We use a 20 minute TAT for a single. We don't always meet this TAT for
various reasons....difficulty in sectioning, unusual case for
pathologist to diagnose (needing more time to look at reference books).

Hello all,

I was wondering what folks are using as a benchmark for frozen section
Do you even have one?  We have always listed a 15 minute TAT for but we
are not always meeting it these days.  The 15 minutes is for single
