UNLABELLED Lymphoscintigraphy associated with radioguided biopsy of the sentinel node (SN) is well established in clinical practice for melanoma. In breast cancer, the SN concept is similarly valid, and lymphoscintigraphy is a useful method for localizing the axillary SN. The aim of this study was to optimize the lymphoscintigraphy technique in association with a gamma ray detecting probe (GDP) for identifying and removing the SN in breast cancer patients.
