Approximately half of the 47 Stage I cases survived 5 yr, so the present study was initiated to determine which histologic features were predictive of survival for Stage I cases. An average of 10 slides per case was evaluated independently by three pathologists, and each slide was subjectively scored using… CONTINUE READING
