abstract

  • Individual predictions of surgical oncologists for non-SLN metastases do not correlate well with the MSKCC nomogram. The distribution between intersurgeon predictions for one scenario is important. Therefore, the nomogram is superior to clinical estimations for predicting the likelihood for non-SLN metastases.
