German term or phrase:NR ("NR li. Blase")
This "NR" is a sample sent in for a pathological assessment, I have failed to find an appropriate translation for the German acronym NR anywhere thus far, although the "R" might stand for "Resektat" (a kind of specimen), judging from previous assessments in the same file.
Any help would be appreciated.
I requested some more information on the document and I have been informed that NR does stand for "Nachresektat", as lirka had guessed - even though it's not Austrian :) (unless the resident physician happens to be...)
The "Makroskopie" section describes a segment of tissue covered in mucosa. However, the same exact phrase (NR li. Blase) appears as an isolated headline here, as well as in the list of sent items (twice total). So I'm not sure about a typo...
Hello lirka, thank you for your answer!
Unfortunately, the context really is that little(as said, a sample sent for a pathological assessment):
1. NR li. Blase
Since there has to be some item sent here (i.e. a piece of the bladder?), I would think the "NR" must be a noun. Not entirely sure, though.

Notes to answerer
Asker: They managed to get in contact with the author and have let me know that, at least in this case, it indeed does stand for "Nachresektat". Many thanks!
