Recommendation ID
NICE recommends that a national registry is developed to collect data on the use of the RD-100i OSNA system in detecting sentinel lymph node metastases during breast cancer surgery. It also recommends that data on all patients having whole lymph node analysis by the RD-100i OSNA system should be submitted to this registry. These data should be integrated with data from other registries for breast cancer where appropriate.
