1. The tumor is scanned at low power (×40–100) (center), and the three areas that contain the highest number of discrete microvessels are selected. have a collapsed configuration. Although the hot spot areas can occur anywhere within the tumor, they are generally at the tumor periphery making it important to include the normal-tumor interface in the representative area to be assessed. Vessels outside the tumor margin by one ×200–250 field diameter and immediately adjacent benign tissue should not be counted.
