Histopathological Diagnosis of Soft Tissue and Bone Tumors by Cytological, Architectural, and Matrical Characteristics

  • Hideo Namiki
Conference paper


Pathological diagnosis of tumors generally depends upon the clinical information, gross appearance, and microscopic features of the tissue specimen. The microscopic features include the cytological characteristics of the tumor cells, their arrangement, the interrelationship between the tumor cells and the supportive tissue, and the results of special studies.
