Gross processing

In order to determine the myometrial invasion, sample the entire distance from the uterine cavity to the serosa, as seen on this uterine cross-section, with two contiguous slices inked blue at the contiguity so that the glass slides can be apposed to measure tumor invasion.
  • As per standard hysterectomy (Further information: Hysterectomy ), and also determine:
  • Greatest tumor dimension
  • Any myometrial invasion of the tumor, as a percentage of the myometrial thickness.
