Accurate nodal staging is important in the management of any primary malignancy. The presence of nodal metastases has both therapeutic and prognostic implications. Lymphotropic nanoparticles are a new class of MRI contrast agents, which are promising in detecting minimal metastatic nodal disease particularly in normal sized lymph nodes. This paper discusses the technique and interpretation of lymphotropic nanoparticle enhanced MRI (LNMRI) and reviews the various trials evaluating nodal staging with ferumoxtran-10 enhanced MRI.
