abstract

  • Because the variable "method of detection" in the MSKCC nomogram is a surrogate for SLN metastasis size, the size category of the SLN metastasis can be used in applying the nomogram to patients in whom the SLN histologic analysis is performed by a much different procedure than that used to develop the MSKCC nomogram. This results in an improved predictive accuracy.
