Table 1: Presentation of the ploidy entities related to tumor size, DI, SPF, PI and SSI. The result of cytochemical parameters as DNA-index (DI), percentages of S-phase (SPF), proliferation index (PI) and Stemline-Scatter-Index (SSI) analyzed at diagnosis and their relation to ploidy entities are shown. The difference between the three ploidy entities D-, A-, and T-type tumors are statistically significant in all parameters except tumor size only between D- and A-type tumors. The D-type tumors are placed both to the left and the right side in the Table to make all comparisons possible.
