Figure 1

Pathology report of a radical prostatectomy specimen in paper form. The prostate is sliced by a standard method. The histopathological findings in a slice are depicted in the corresponding slice of the scheme. Each slice is attributed its own "slice factor" (+) representing the proportion.

The graphical information includes the schematic diagram and the symbols, whereas personal and pathological data is textual.
