Breast Tumor


Nuclear pleomorphism from fine needle aspiration smears and breast tumor type (Bofin et al., 2004).

Bofin et al. (2004) studied associations between different findings in fine needle aspiration (FNA) smears from breast tumors and the final histological diagnosis of tumor type in 133 patients. The aim of the study was to identify variables developed from FNA smears that could differentiate between the different tumor diagnoses. Table 7.8 presents the cross-classification of the FNA variable nuclear pleomorphism with tumor types. Both variables can be considered as ordered, with tumor type ordered from benign (as in NPBD) to most malign (as in IDC).
