Preoperative Needle Biopsy of Sentinel Lymph Nodes Using Intradermal Microbubbles and Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound in Patients With Breast Cancer
American Journal of Roentgenology, 07/27/2012
Sever AR et al. – Sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) can be identified and biopsied using contrast–enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) to increase the accuracy of preoperative axillary staging. If the needle biopsy result is negative, conventional SLN biopsy is indicated.
