Abstract : The value of nuclear parameters were determined using interactive computer image analysis system on 100 preoperative FNAC smears of breast lesion were radical mastectomy was performed subsequently. Twenty cases of benign lesion were taken as control. The lymph node status was correlated with the nuclear and nucleolar variables. It is found that few nuclear parameters have good discriminatory power. Computerised interactive morphometry proved to be far superior to eye-piece measurements with respect to accuracy, reproducibility and time taken for parameter estimation which leads to the determination of better prognostic indicator.
