Detection of Sentinel Node in Gastric Cancer Surgery by Indocyanine Green Fluorescence Imaging: Comparison with Infrared Imaging

Secure methods for clinical detection of the sentinel node (SN) are in great demand to avoid unnecessary resection. This was a clinical exploration/feasibility study of a novel detection system for SN biopsy using indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence imaging in gastric cancer surgery. SN biopsy using ICG dye was performed in three patients who had gastric… CONTINUE READING
