For DS2, 2 US board-certified pathologists (with at least 10 years of experience) independently graded each slide as macrometastasis, micrometastasis, isolated tumor cells (ITCs), or negative.
"In this way, we hope to identify the factors leading to the formation of micrometastasis in Ewing sarcoma."
In this study, no lymph node involvement or distant metastasis were detected by PET while micrometastasis was histologically detected in the SLN in 2 of the 5 patients (40%) included in the study during the 10 month study period.
(1) Bone marrow micrometastasis is a well-known phenomenon associated with breast cancer and is a poor prognostic marker, associated with poor overall survival and disease-free survival.
Only one patient had LN micrometastasis, and that patient had a higher mean tumor size (15 mm) in our study.
In locally advanced stages, neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) has been mentioned in this era to reduce the primary size and decrease micrometastasis [19].
The unique feature of our software platform is that it enables at a whole-body level and with high resolution the localization of micrometastases in the body by employing single cell resolution cryo-imaging as a key modality and provides tools for studying the targeting efficiency at each micrometastasis. To our knowledge, such a platform has never been reported before.

Occult micrometastasis to bone marrow in early stage breast cancer appeared in around 30% of the patients and was considered a poor prognostic factor [10].

This allows us to use these results in the specific clinical scenario under evaluation: a papillary thyroid cancer patient without preoperative evidence of lymphatic node metastasis, but with interoperative findings of lymph node micrometastasis. Yet, it also allows us to use the information for decisions regarding other hypothetical, but frequent, clinical scenarios, such as when a total thyroidectomy without lymphadenectomy is performed for PTC and lymphatic permeation in the primary tumor is found or when a total thyroidectomy is performed along with routine dissection of the central compartment (level VI) and the final histological report indicates lymphatic permeation and at least one lymphatic micrometastasis.
