      Thanks Dick K. I posted a similar news clip on this a few days ago. Its really exciting progress because finding the microscopic cells in Lymph nodes is very difficult and if they are there thisis what can drive mets and reccurance. And for so many women having many nodes removed only to find out they were all negative in BC is really difficult.

      I hope thye ar able to implement for all cancers soon.
