The proportion of Ki-67 immunostained cells (Ki-67 labeling index, LI) is one of the most commonly used histology methods for estimating proliferation of breast carcinomas. Although the Ki-67 LI is used in treatment decision making, its reproducibility shows variation in different studies, and is generally less then optimal. The aim of the present study was to investigate how the use of a standardized, partially digitalized counting method could affect reproducibility of determining the Ki-67… CONTINUE READING
