Title: Estrogen Receptor Assay
Description: An Asian female technician performing a breast pathology test on some frozen breast tissue. She is standing and wearing a white laboratory coat. She appears to be compressing breast tissue in a small laboratory dish and inspecting it. This is one of the steps in an estrogen receptor assay. Results suggest whether removal of ovaries or use of antiestrogen drugs are likely to be effective.
