Mean nuclear volume
Point sampled intercepts
To obtain objective information about bladder cancer, we measured the mean nuclear volume of bladder cancer cells by using the "Point Sampled Intercepts" method, which was published by Gundersen et al. Thirty one cases of bladder cancer were selected and divided into 2 groups: group A; no recurrence over 3 years after initial TUR (12 cases), group B; cystectomy or cancer death (19 cases). Estimated mean nuclear volume was significantly smaller in group A than in group B. It is suggested that estimation of the mean nuclear volume by this stereological method may provide objective information for predicting the prognosis of patients with bladder cancers. Further studies in additional patients are required to substantiate the predictive potential of this method.
