Gross examination

  • Determine the proximal (oral) and distal (aboral) of the specimen if possible.[1]
  • Measure the length and diameter of the entire specimen.[1]
  • Surfaces that appear to overlie a tumor can be inkedTemplate:Ink note.
  • Initial cutting can be:
  • A longitudinal cut opposite to the tumor if it is relatively demarcated
  • Cross-sectional slicing, particularly for circumferential tumors or those not readily visible.
  • Measure the distance proximal and distal of the tumor.[1]
  • Note any accompanying "polyps".[1]
  • Describe the serosa, and whether there are any suspected tumor breakthroughs hereof.[1]
  • Further tumor evaluation:[1]
  • Size
  • The proportion of the circumference involved
  • Distance to the resection edges
