Detection of axillary lymph node metastases in breast cancer with Tc-99m tetrofosmin scintigraphy.

Abstract

The most important prognostic factor in breast (B) cancer (C) is axillary (A) lymph (L) node (N) status, and virtually all patients with BC undergo ALN dissection to assess N involvement. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of planar and tomographic Tc-99m tetrofosmin scintigraphy in the detection of ALN involvement in BC. A group of 85… (More)
