OBJECTIVE We compared early and delayed lymphoscintigraphy images using intradermal injection of (99m)Tc-antimony sulfide colloid, which has small particles. METHODS Eighty patients with early-stage breast cancer were included into the study. Intradermal injection of (99m)Tc-antimony sulfide colloid was used for sentinel node mapping. After radiotracer(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the concordance between peri-areolar blue dye and peri-incisional radiotracer injections for axillary sentinel node mapping of patients with the history of previous breast lesion excisional biopsy. METHODS 80 patients with the history of previous excisional biopsy of the breast lesions were included. All patients received two(More)

OBJECTIVE The standard method for axillary lymph node staging in early breast cancer is sentinel lymph node biopsy. In some patients the sentinel lymph node can not be localized during surgery and these patients have to undergo standard axillary lymph node dissection. In this study we have evaluated the predictors of sentinel lymph node localization failure(More)
Despite the successful application of sentinel node mapping in breast cancer patients, its use in patients with a history of previous excisional biopsy of the breast tumors is a matter of controversy. In the present study we evaluated the accuracy of sentinel node biopsy in this group of patients and compared the results with those in whom the diagnosis of(More)
Introduction: Several radiotracers are being used for sentinel node mapping in patients with breast cancer. In the current study, we reported our experience with 99m-Tc Phytate for sentinel node mapping in Mashhad University of Medical Sciences. Methods: All breast cancer patients who underwent sentinel node mapping using 99m-Tc Phytate were included. All(More)
Chylothorax is by definition a collection of lymphatic fluids in the pleural cavity because of leakage from main thoracic duct or its tributaries. It is an uncommon but serious postoperative complication in esophageal cancer patients. There is no standard therapeutic algorithm for chylothorax because no prospective or randomized trials have yet been(More)
INTRODUCTION In the current study, we evaluated the accuracy of sentinel node mapping in thyroid cancer patients using both radiotracer and blue dye. MATERIAL AND METHODS 30 patients with a diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) were included in the study; 2-3 hours before surgery, 0.5 mCi 99m-Tc-Antimony Sulfide Colloid was injected(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical resection of the abnormal parathyroid glands is the only curative treatment for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Radioguided parathyroidectomy with technetium-99m (TC-99m) sestamibi has been successfully used in patients with PHPT. This study was designed to evaluate the results of a series of patients with PHPT who underwent(More)
Introduction: Lymphoscintigraphy is imaging of the lymphatic system and has been integrated into the sentinel node mapping procedures. Lymphoscintigraphy usually encompasses early or delayed static images. However, immediate dynamic imaging of the lymphatic basins and tumors has also been used as an adjunct lymphoscintigraphy imaging. The aim of this study(More)
