| Grade||Vessel architecture||Crypt architecture|
|Normal||Hexagonal, honeycomb appearance||Regular luminal openings, homogenous layer of epithelial cells|
|Regeneration||Hexagonal, honeycomb appearance with no or mild increase in the number of capillaries||Star-shaped luminal crypt openings or focal aggregation of regular-shaped crypts with a regular or reduced amount of goblet cells|
|Neoplasia||Dilated and distorted vessels; irregular architecture with little or no orientation to adjunct tissue||Ridged-lined irregular epithelial layer with loss of crypts and goblet cells; irregular cell architecture with little or no mucin|
