Table 1 Methods of elastin fiber visualization: HES staining versus elastin special stain*

From: Breast cancer stromal elastosis is associated with mammography screening detection, low Ki67 expression and favourable prognosis in a population-based study

  Elastosis grade using HES stain  
Elastin stain 0 1 2 3 Total
0 56 1 0 0 57
1 35 54 2 0 91
2 1 23 51 0 75
3 0 0 4 45 49
Total 92 78 57 45 272
  1. Elastosis was graded semiquantitatively from 0–3 using either stain.
  2. *p-value < 0.001 for comparison (Kendall´s test).
