Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping with radioisotope and blue dye is rapidly becoming the standard of care for breast cancer. The optimal location for injection of radioisotope and blue dye is still being investigated. The goal of this study was to determine whether blue dye injection into the subareolar (SA) location localized the same sentinel nodes as the peritumoral (PT) location for patients with breast cancer. Three hundred thirty-two patients with biopsy-proven operable breast cancer or… CONTINUE READING
