Ultrasound-guided, lymph node, fine-needle aspiration cytology is important in diagnosing axillary lymph node metastasis in breast cancer. However, poor needle visibility can render the procedure difficult. We describe a case in which state-of-the-art enhancement techniques using matrix linear probes can provide better needle visibility and improve the certainty and efficiency of the examination.
