UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to determine whether the sentinel lymph node (SLN) can be accurately detected in cutaneous melanoma patients when the injection distance from the tumor site is expanded. METHODS In 100 patients with cutaneous melanoma, lymphoscintigraphy was performed twice. First, we injected 37 MBq (99m)Tc nanocolloid intracutaneously… CONTINUE READING
