BACKGROUND Many empiric protocols are used to detect metastases in sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs), but comparison of the efficacy of these methods is impractical because tissue is lost in processing, making reassessment with another policy difficult. Consequently, performance indicators of this test are largely unknown. DESIGN The authors retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
