liver remodeling tumorous lesion number to liver total tumorous lesion number ratio  
A calculated measurement in which the number of tumorous lesions which display a remodeling phenotype, that is, a progressive decrease in biochemical marker expression and growth rate, and finally complete regression, in a specified sample of liver is divided by the total number of tumorous lesions in that sample of liver, and presented as a ratio, fraction, quotient or percentage. A tumorous lesion is one which is or has the potential to become a tumor, that is, a neoplasm or new growth of tissue in which cell multiplication is more or less uncontrolled and progressive. Tumorous lesions include tumors, preneoplastic lesions, and hyperplastic lesions composed of histologically normal cells.
