Is Pre-Operative Axillary Staging with Ultrasound and Ultrasound-Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration Reliable in Invasive Lobular Carcinoma of the Breast?

Abstract

Axillary ultrasound (US) with US-guided fine-needle aspiration (US-FNA) for suspicious lymph nodes is important for pre-operative staging and planning of surgical management. Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) metastases were previously thought to be difficult to detect, but with a limited amount of evidence. This study investigated the ability of US and US… (More)
