What is the definition of TAT? I don't know anything about the requirements
of "your" CAP, but I think it's a matter of definition.

For my understanding turnaround time is the duration from receiving the
specimen until the report to the surgeon. The report is the product of the
histo-process. And it should matter, if you have to make one or ten frozen
sections to get this goal.
My thoughts.

Betreff: [Histonet] Frozen section turnaround time

Hello to everyone in histoland.  I have a question concerning frozen section
turnaround time.  When you do your turnaround time report do you do it based
on multiple sections or single sections.  The bulk of our cases are multiple
block frozens.  They never meet the 20 min. time limit.  The report that I
turn in never meets the 100% compliance rate based on my numbers.  Would
someone be willing to share a report with me.  My manager is concerned that
we are not being compliant.  Thanks in advance.
