Lymph node status is important in the staging of many malignancies. Although tissue characterization by histologic analysis of biopsy samples may improve staging, noninvasive staging is more acceptable to both patients and clinicians. Several imaging techniques may serve this goal. Modern noninvasive techniques such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance detect lymph node abnormality by nodal enlargement, but that does not always imply malignant involvement. On the other hand, many nodes… CONTINUE READING
