- Background: Axillary staging represents one of the prognostic factors in breast cancer therapy. Dissection of axillary lymph node often results several morbidities such us pain, sensation loss or paresthesia, seroma, infection, reduced shoulder movement and lymphedema. Sonography is frequently put into use to evaluate axillary lymph node. Sonography consistently has high preoperative sensitivity and specificity in predicting status of the axillary lymph node. In addition, color Doppler can also to detect a presence of the small vessels and is able to perform an assessment of the number and distribution of those small vessels within tissues. Objective: To see features of the vascular distribution using color Doppler sonography in axillary lymph node in patients with breast cancer to assess a presence of metastasis. Material and Methode : Research design used here was a diagnostic test. Sample including patients with breast cancer who have not underwent both curative and palliative therapies, and they would experience Modified Radical Mastectomy in Soetomo Hospital Surabaya. Twenty-three samples were collected. Results: Twenty-three samples regarding features of the peripheral vascular distribution, average age of the patients was 46.5 year ñ 11,6, while 53.4 year ñ 12.5 for the central vascular distribution in which most patients were belonging to age groups of 40-49 and 50-59 year, namely each age group accounted for four cases. Sensitivity of the relevant radiological modality was 66.7 %, specificity 50%, accuracy 60.9 %, positive predictive value 71.4 % and negative predictive value 44.4 %. Conclusion: A vascular presentation of the axillary color Doppler sonography in patients with breast cancer has not yet sensitivity and spesificity enough to be used as diagnostic tool to assess metastasis.
