and atom probe tomography, high resolution transmission electron microscopy); d) processing/characterization of carbon materials, metal and ceramic matrix composites as well as functionally graded materials; and e) performance testing for targeted applications (available through special designed testing facilities at the research centres and industrial partners).
In this study, lymph nodes were sectioned at 2 mm intervals longitudinally and with serial sectioning
, metastatic disease was detected within the first four H&E-stained sections in 9/11 cases.
The finding of a STIC lesion is not routinely noted in pathology reports however, possibly because of the lack of serial sectioning
of tubes and ovaries in the general population, when no germline mutation is present.
Evaluation of the tumor invasion through a standardized gross protocol of perpendicular, serial sectioning
is needed for objective and reproducible measurement of tumor invasion in ampullary neoplasms.
Reports indicate that, approximately 5-20% of head & necksquamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients' harbored occult metastasis not identified by routine histopathological examination but detected by other methods such as step serial sectioning
The method has been developed around typical life science specimens (dehydrated, heavy metal-stained and resin-embedded), prepared for serial sectioning
Oncologists only recently recognized that detecting occult fallopian tube and ovarian cancers in women at high risk requires meticulous serial sectioning
of the entire fallopian tube and ovary at 2-mm intervals.
Hooks, typical for the oral armature of pentastomes, were found by serial sectioning
(Figure, left inset).
of the ligments from dorsal to plantar in the shod foot en pointe demonstrated no change in alignment after the dorsal and interosseous ligaments were cut, but a significant change in alignment between the second metatarsal and second cuneiform was noted after the plantar ligament was cut (p < 0.
of thyroid follicles showed thyroid hyperplasia with increased follicular epithelial cell height and reduced colloid in all groups of fish that had been exposed to perchlorate for 28 days, compared with control fish.
of small diameter (1-2mm) objects is an important part of the uses envisaged for the equipment.
On gross examination, serial sectioning
of the mastectomy specimen revealed a well circumscribed growth measuring 5.
