Abstract

Breast cancer is a common malignant tumor that seriously threatens women's health. The incidence rate is
increasing year by year, especially in economically developed cities. The purpose of this study is to explore the
characteristics and value of color Doppler ultrasound in the diagnosis of axillary lymph node metastasis in
breast cancer, and to provide a reference for early diagnosis and treatment of axillary lymph node metastasis in
breast cancer. In this article, 86 patients with axillary lymph node metastases from breast cancer treated in a
hospital from January 2017 to December 2019 were selected as the research subjects. Color ultrasonography and
conventional ultrasound were performed for examination. According to postoperative pathology, the comparison
between color ultrasound and conventional ultrasound Diagnostic value and comparative analysis of benign and
malignant lymph nodes. This study found that the accuracy of color Doppler ultrasound in diagnosing axillary
lymph node metastasis in breast cancer is 90.70%, the specificity is 85.19%, and the sensitivity is 93.22%; while
the accuracy of conventional ultrasound in diagnosing axillary lymph node metastasis in breast cancer is 83.72%,
and the specificity is 92.59%. The sensitivity is 79.66%. The sensitivity of color ultrasound is significantly
higher than that of conventional ultrasound.
