Sentinel lymph node detection with iron oxide particles (Sentimag® technique) is a new technique. However, deposition of the iron oxide particles in the breast tissue may cause artifacts in the follow-up MRI examination (1). We aim to evaluate the effect of iron oxide particle deposition on follow-up MRI examination of patients who underwent sentinel lymph node detection with iron oxide particles.
