Could radiotherapy play a major role in misidentification of sentinel lymph node in breast cancer recurrence?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Misidentification of sentinel lymph node via lymphoscintigraphy for breast cancer is an infrequent event. We analysed 35.022 consecutive procedures from a single institution and tried to find a correlation between failures of sentinel node identification and previous oncologic treatments received by the patients.
