RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To assess the value of power Doppler for distinguishing reactive from malignant lymph node disease. METHODS In a prospective study, 48 untreated patients with palpable cervical lymph node enlargement (n = 211) underwent examination with power Doppler sonography. The perfusion sites were subdivided into three groups: central, peripheral, and hilar perfusion.
