Anyone ordered the halo test for breast cancer?

In brief: Nipple fluid test
The halo test looks at nipple aspirates for any suspicious cells.
However, there is no helpful data to suggest that it is either sensitive or specific for breast cancer. We generally don't use it in our armentarium for diagnosing breast cancer. It's one of those tests that can be done, but the question is, "should it be done?".
