BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The challenge for implementation of sentinel lymph node biopsy is to develop a reliable minimally invasive technique that identifies all possible sentinel nodes with high temporal and spatial resolution. This study evaluated the use of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent (USPIO) for preoperative sentinel node detection. METHODS Anesthetized pigs received interstitial or intradermal injections of ultra small superparamagnetic of iron oxide (USPIO) (0.2… CONTINUE READING
