Aim: Assess the role of planar lymphoscintigraphy and fusion imaging of SPECT/CT in sentinel lymph node (SLN) identification in patients with breast cancer. Methods: Planar scintigraphy and hybrid modality SPECT/CT were performed in 223 consecutive women with breast cancer (mean age 59,5 yrs with range 25 - 82 years). In 190 women with a palpable mass radiocolloid was injected in four peritumoral sites and one subdermal injection above the tumour (GROUP A), in 33 women with nonpalpable tumour… CONTINUE READING
