Immunohistochemical determination of estrogen and progesterone receptor content in human breast cancer. Computer-assisted image analysis (QIC score) vs. subjective grading (IRS)


, : Immunohistochemical determination of estrogen and progesterone receptor content in human breast cancer. Computer-assisted image analysis (QIC score) vs. subjective grading (IRS). Pathology, Research and Practice 189(8): 862-866

Immunohistochemistry of Estrogen Receptor (ER) and Progesterone Receptor (PR) has been performed in 687 cases of human breast cancer. The staining results have been compared by (1) computer-assisted image analysis (QIC Score) and (2) subjective grading of the cryostat sections ("German" IRS). Tumors without or with only weak ER or PR content may be distinguished by both methods from tumors with a high receptor content.
