UNLABELLED Identification of the sentinel node by using colloidal tracers and a gamma probe or lymphoscintigraphy could be an effective alternative for the complicated original dye-oriented approach. We studied the sentinel node detection rate using early and delayed imaging in breast cancer patients. METHODS Thirty-seven patients were imaged 2 hr and 18 hr after peritumoral injection of 99mTc-colloidal albumin. Preoperatively, axillary foci were located with a handheld gamma probe that was… CONTINUE READING
