Abstract

Introduction: Our aim was to evaluate the development of microbubble-enhanced sentinel lymph node (SLN) localization with placement of an I-125 seed in breast cancer patients as a potential alternative for SLN localization with nanocolloid. The study is conducted and reported following the IDEAL recommendations for evaluation of a new technique at Stage 2a (Prospective Development Study).
