    This is the comment from the expanded abstract from 2012.
    Not sure whether I have posted before however it makes the case for intraoperative brain surgery fairly compelling.

    "When applied in lieu of frozen-section diagnosis, common
    confounding factors, such as frozen-section artifact
    and cautery artifact, also may be avoided. Furthermore,
    the time to diagnosis could be greatly shortened and the
    demand on pathology department personnel minimized.
    Perhaps most important, the speed and sensitivity of such
    a system could influence neurosurgical decision making,
    particularly at the presumed margins of a resection cavity.
    Because all data are digitally acquired and stored, electronic
    transmission of images to remotely located pathologists
    could also enable real-time telepathology. Although
    intraoperative confocal microscopy is still in its infancy,
    our results suggest that this technology has the potential
    to revolutionize the way that we approach intraoperative​
    diagnosis."
