We have been doing these cases for over a year now.  During the first year,
the specimens were sent from surgery to nuclear medicine and held for 60
hours before being sent to Histology. Nuclear Medicine monitored all year
and then it was decided by our physicist and the medical staff that it was
safe for the specimens to come directly to Histology.
