Abstract

Intraoperative histopathology consultation during Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) with a dermatopathologist is advantageous in some cases requiring a clarification of a diagnosis but may be difficult because in comparison to the Mohs laboratory, the dermatopathology facility can be remote. Telepathology technology provides a time-efficient means of consultation during MMS via the electronic transmission of pathology images, which can foster case discussions, and expedite the confirmation of diagnosis and treatment decisions.
