Methods to decrease variability in histological scoring in placentas from a cohort of preterm infants

OBJECTIVE Reliable semiquantitative assessment of histological placental acute inflammation is problematic, even among experts. Tissue samples in histology slides often show variability in the extent and location of neutrophil infiltrates. We sought to determine whether the variability in pathologists' scoring of neutrophil infiltrates in the placenta could… CONTINUE READING
