Abstract

Tumor size, the most significant prognostic feature for distant disease-free survival among image-detected T1N0 breast carcinomas, is often improperly determined. Such miscalculations can result in a recording of a larger T-size and stage, and inappropriate recommendations for adjuvant therapies. Common errors in tumor size determination are reviewed and illustrated. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
