Histological grading of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is usually evaluated in a semiquantitative way and this causes a low grade of reproducibility of this prognostic evaluation. The aim in this preliminary phase is to investigate the relation between nuclear shape (studied by an analytical procedure) and histological grading to evaluate the weight of nuclear shape and dimension in grading formulation. Nine cases of OSCC were studied (3 cases of G1, G2 and G3 respectively) with 20 nuclei… CONTINUE READING
