AbstractBackground In breast cancer patients, sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) can be identified in the breast clinic using contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS). This study aimed to characterize and compare the extent of axillary metastases in patients with either a benign or malignant SLN core biopsy at the end of surgical treatment.Methods Between 2009 and 2014, prospective data were collected on consecutive patients who underwent targeted core biopsy of SLN identified using CEUS in the breast… CONTINUE READING
