Özet

AIM: We aimed to evaluate; (i) the accuracy of ultrasonography (US), contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI) and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) for detection of axillary lymph node metastases (ALNMs), (ii) the role of late prone imaging, and (iii) the effect of PET/CT on preoperative staging of breast cancer.
