Description: Seen are a technician's hands performing a lab test. The test tube with some frozen breast tissue and some liquid are visible, as well as the techician in some slides. This is the estrogen receptor assay being performed at the time of mastectomy. Results suggest whether removal of ovaries or use of antiestrogen drugs are likely to be effective therapy.
