UNLABELLED We introduced and evaluated a portable gamma-camera for intraoperative visualization of sentinel nodes in the head and neck region. METHODS Planar lymphoscintigraphy and SPECT/CT were performed after peritumoral injection of (99m)Tc-nanocolloid in 25 patients (head and neck melanoma or oral cavity carcinoma). Sentinel nodes were localized intraoperatively with a portable gamma-camera and a hand-held gamma-probe. The portable gamma-camera was used to determine the distribution of… CONTINUE READING
