I have questions about the meaning of these positive margins in particular . 1. APEX: Positive , focal , right side. What does focal mean with this margin ? 2. PERIPHERAL: Positive , right lateral toward apex in area of capsular incision. What does capsular incision mean with this margin ? Could this positive margin be an artifact ?
