Medical - Medical (general) / histology
Italian term or phrase: nicchia
Referto istologico: il tessuto osseo è solo parzialmente apprezzabile, con cellule ossee poco evidenti, accolte in piccole nicchie.

Naturalmente ho pensato a "niche", ma il termine è talmente usato in relazione alle cellule staminali, che mi chiedo se esista un altro modo più appropriato di tradurre in questo caso.

Grazie
