We trace signatures of quantum chaos in the distribution of nodal points and streamlines for coherent electron transport through different types of quantum dots (chaotic and regular). We have calculated normalized distribution functions for the nearest distances between nodal points and found that this distribution may be used as a signature of quantum chaos for electron transport in open systems. Different chaotic billiards show the same characteristic distribution function for nodal points. This signature of quantum chaos is well reproduced using well known approaches for chaotic wavefunctions. We have also investigated the quantum flows which display some remarkable features.
