Atlas of Selective Lymphadenectomy for cancer, Breast melanoma and Colon Cancer emphasizes a multidisciplinary strategy combining the studies of a nuclear drugs health care professional, health care provider, and pathologist. this can be an immense reference additionally for researchers and clinicians who are looking to familiarize yourself with sentinel lymph node mapping. The underlying thesis in reliable tumor biology is that metastasis often starts off in an orderly development with lymphatic unfold first to the sentinel lymph node (SLN) within the nearest lymph node basin. for this reason, the logical strategy is to reap that categorical SLN for thorough analysis.

When the SLN is close proximity to the injection site, moving the breast away from the SLN can be helpful (Figure 15). The procedure takes about one hour to accomplish with views done in multiple projections of the axilla. If internal mammary nodes are seen, they are marked in the anterior projection. On occasion, delayed films may be required. About three hours should be allotted prior to the scheduled surgery. When the injection is close to the axillary basin, the breast can be displaced to better visualize the sentinel node.
