abstract

  • The nomogram provides a fairly accurate predicted probability for the likelihood of non-SLN metastases in a general population of breast cancer patients at a regional teaching hospital in The Netherlands. This suggests that the nomogram's originally calculated predictive accuracy may be valid for patient populations that differ considerably from the population in which it was developed.
