Intra-Operative Consult Request

Requisition

REQ9039AP Request for Intra-Operative Pathology Consultation
REQ9034AP Intra-Operative Neuropathology Consultation

Provide as much clinical information as possible.

Specimen Handling and Transport

Submit a FRESH specimen only - no fixative, in an appropriate sized plastic container. Label the container appropriately. Containers must be securely tightened to eliminate leakage.

Specimens must be submitted to the Histology lab IMMEDIATELY. Call the lab to notify them that the specimen is being sent (403-944-1227).

Notes

Intra-Operative Consults are performed at Hospital sites only. Intra-Operative Consult reports will typically be communicated to the surgeon within 20 minutes from the time the specimen is received. After normal hours, the physician should contact the Pathologist on-call at your site.

For Neuropathology cases, contact the neuropathologist on-call through the Foothills Medical Centre.  For Neuropathology cases at the Alberta Children's Hospital, contact the pathologist on-call at that site.
