1997 ESACP consensus report on diagnostic DNA image cytometry. Part I:
basic considerations and recommendations for preparation, measurement and
interpretation. European Society for Analytical Cellular Pathology.
University of Technology, Dresden, Germany.
A task force of invited experts in the field of diagnostic
DNA image cytometry, especially consisting of participants from the PRESS
(Prototype Reference Standard Slides) and EUROPATH (European Pathology
Assisted by Telematics for Healthcare) projects, but open to any other
scientist or physician revealing experience in that new diagnostic procedure
(names are given in the Annex A) agreed upon the following updated consensus
report during the 5th International Congress of the ESACP 1997 in Oslo. This
report is based on the preceeding one  and on results of the above
mentioned European research projects. It deals with the following items:
Biological background and aims of DNA image cytometry, Principles of the
method, Basic performance standards, Diagnostic interpretation of DNA
measurements, Recommendations for practical use.
