Abstract

Cytological smears from gastric biopsies were studied by two types of TAS. Bocking's algorithm and a great number of form factors were used to separate the intact cells from the tumourous ones. The numerically expressed density features and morphometric parameters are able to indicate the possibility of malignant transformation even in dysplasia. These values become much higher in tumours and lead to unequivocal diagnosis. Both types of TAS render valuable help in assessing cases not reliably diagnosed by routine staining procedures.
