Abstract

Colour Doppler scans were carried out on 80 patients with breast carcinoma. Both the tumour and the lower axilla were scanned in all 80 patients. Seventy-five patients subsequently underwent axillary lymph node dissection and histological examination. The sensitivity of colour Doppler scanning for axillary node involvement was 70%, with a specificity of 98% and a positive predictive value of 96%.
