Abstract: 

Background: Knowledge of axillary lymph node Status is essential in treatment planning and in prognostic evaluation of breast cancer.
Materials and Methods: Preoperative high resolution Sonography of axilla, were performed on 100 patients with breast carcinoma (T1-T2) clinical, before axillary lymph node dissection and pathologic evaluation.
Results: The Sensitivity of ultra Sonography in detection of axillary metastasis was 78% with specificity of 79% and accuracy of 79% PPV was 85% and NPV was 70%.
Conclusion: Preoperative ultra sonography, alone, is not optimal for detect ion of axillary lymphnode metastasis.
