LIMA, Jacqueline Silva Brito et al. Morphoquantitative Analysis of the Intraepithelial Neoplasic Uterine Cells by Computer Image System. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp.93-98. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022008000100016.
The purpose of the present research was to detect the DNA variations by Feulgen stained chromatin and the packing degree of the cervical chromatin in the clinical cases of human uterine carcinomas. Scanning microphotometry was carried out on slides prepared from block Feulgen-stained. Accurate control procedures were performed using normal human cell nuclei. The cervical cells was morphometric studied using the Image Lab System for citologic classification. The overall diagnostic accuracy for neoplasia type I (CIN I) and type II (CIN II), demonstrated by stain interpetration values of a sensitive detection of DNA neuroploidy and a significant difference between the two groups in scanning static cytophotometry.
