Axillary assessment in invasive lobular cancers

      Objective: Pre-operative axillary ultrasound (AUS) is used to stage the axilla and to prevent the need for further axillary treatment following sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). AUS has a sensitivity of approximately 50% in invasive ductal cancers (IDC). It has been suggested that invasive lobular cancer (ILC) has a distinctive biological growth pattern, making axillary assessment more challenging. This study aimed to assess if AUS for ILC was less sensitive than IDC.
