The feasibility of using indirect CT lymphography (CT-LG) to guide sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in a rabbit model of tongue VX2 carcinoma with cervical lymph node metastasis was studied. Tongue VX2 carcinoma with cervical lymph node metastasis was induced in 19 rabbits by injecting VX2 carcinoma suspension into the tongue submucosa. SLN biopsy was performed under the guidance of indirect CT-LG. SLN identification was performed by indirect CT-LG combined with blue dye injection in 2 rabbits… CONTINUE READING
