Abstract In an attempt to discover the morphometric variables with the most diagnostic power in the differentiation of benign from malignant breast disease, 20 unequivocally benign and 20 unequivocally malignant and histologically confirmed breast aspirates were examined on an image analyser. It was found that standard deviation of nuclear area was the most discriminant variable. Then 23 aspirates initially diagnosed as 'suspicious of malignancy' were measured by the same technique, and standard deviation of nuclear area correctly differentiated all but three cases.
