Pulmonary carcinoid tumors are currently classified as typical or atypical based on the mitotic index (2 per 10 hpf) and/or the presence of necrosis. Following incorporation of the Ki-67 index into the classification of GI carcinoid tumors, our oncologists have also been requesting this test as part of the work-up of pulmonary carcinoid tumors although there are currently no established criteria for interpreting Ki-67 index in these neoplasms. We utilized the Ariol® SL50 Image Analyzer system… CONTINUE READING
