Accurate prognostic indicators would help in identifying patients at high risk for recurrence and death. Recent and previous studies indicate that intratumoural microvessel density (iMVD) of invasive breast carcinoma (a measure of tumour angiogenesis) is associated with aggressive tumour growth; iMVD may thus be a valuable prognostic indicator. Moreover, the bulk of accumulating data indicates that microvessel density in the area of most intense neovascularization in invasive breast carcinoma… CONTINUE READING
