Abstract / Description of output

This paper describes the correlation between US-CT images and pathologic findings in the most common solid and cystic renal tumors, to better differentiate malignant and benign renal masses. Several intratumoral tissue components present correlation with US-CT images. Macroscopic components, corresponding to necrotic, hemorrhagic and cystic changes, are identified by visual analysis of the gross specimen, while microscopic components are identified by histopathologic analysis. Microscopic components are classified as cellular [(1) high cellularity with poor extracellular stroma, +/-high nucleus-cytoplasm ratio+/-high uniformity in tumoral cells dimensions; (2) low cellularity with large extracellular stroma+/-low nucleus-cytoplasm ratio+/-low uniformity in tumoral cells dimensions], stromal [(1) fibrotic; (2) fibrovascular; (3) fibromyxoid], vascular related to neoangiogenesis, necrotic [(1) coagulative; (2) colliquative; (3) hemorrhagic], calcific, and adipose.
