Swedish term or phrase: Storsnitt och mindre klossar
HI, I am translating a pathology report from swedish to english and one section states that the tissue sample (preparatet) was examined in 'storsnitt och mindre klossar'. I have only been able to come up with 'large incision and smaller cubes' - am hoping someone with Swedish medical terminology expertise could help me out here!
