abstract

  • These data demonstrate that intradermal injection of radioactive tracer is an effective method of localizing the SLN in cases involving small breast cancers. Further investigation is warranted before this technique is adopted for use in larger breast cancers. Intraoperative examination and biopsy of any suspicious nonsentinel nodes are critical.
