Abstract

In this study ten cases of breast infiltrating ductal carcinoma have been considered. In all of them the content of ER has been evaluated by using monoclonal antibodies. Five of them were ER positive and five were ER negative. For the morphometric study ten nuclei of each case have been considered. By using the S.A.M. (Shape Analytical Morphometry) work-station an analytical study of the nuclear shape was performed. The first step was the extraction of fundamental shape which describes the basic shape of original contour without its irregularities. It was obtained by using two parametric equations. The second step was the evaluation of shape asymmetry by S.A.E. (Shape Asymmetry Evaluator). Finally the contour irregularities were evaluated by Fourier analysis. Along with analytical parameters, dimensions (area, perimeter and maximum diameter) were considered too. All obtained data were submitted to univariate statistical analysis (Student's T test) to compare the two groups (ER positive and ER negative tumors). Area, perimeter and maximum diameter were significatively greater in ER negative cases while analytical parameters were not discriminant between the two groups.
