Assessing good operating conditions for intraoperative imaging of melanoma sentinel nodes by a portable gamma camera.


OBJECTIVE To provide guidance for reliable identification of low-activity sentinel nodes in the setting of melanoma surgery using a commercial hand-held gamma camera. METHODS The average uptake of (99m)Tc nanocolloid by sentinel nodes was evaluated in 95 excised nodes using a Sentinella 102(®) (Oncovision, Valencia, Spain) portable gamma camera. The… (More)
