Site-Specific Factor 10

Mean Diameter Nucleoli (MLN)


**Note 1:** Record the mean diameter of the 10 largest nucleoli (MLN) measured on a tissue sample. The absolute values depend on the staining and imaging methods used. Larger values are associated with shorter survival. **Note 2:** Record the value as expressed in tenths of micrometers. Record the information based on quartiles for laboratory standards if this is the only expression of results.
