In sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy for head and neck cancers, the radioisotope method has been the gold standard. However, this method has several problems, such as unavoidable radiation exposure and requirements of expensive equipment.

Sentinel lymph node biopsy is currently the standard surgical procedure for lymph node staging in patients with early stage breast cancer. It is performed using different techniques, such as the injec...
We here describe a case report of a positive precaval sentinel lymph node with negative pelvic sentinel lymph node in a patient with endometrial cancer. A 45-years-old woman was diagnosed with a grade...
To assess the applicability of a novel hybrid dextran-gadolinium nanoparticles (NPs) as high-relaxivity T1 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent for mapping the sentinel lymph node (SLN).
To identify factors that affect successful adaptation of sentinel lymph node mapping and those that lead to unintended adipose-only sentinel lymph node identification.
The main surgical treatment for invasive malignant melanoma consists of wide surgical and examination of the sentinel node and in selected cases complete lymph node dissection. The aim of this review ...
This pilot phase I trial studies how well sonazoid-enhanced ultrasound works in detecting sentinel lymph node in patients with cutaneous melanoma. Sonazoid is a contrast agent that may mak...
The purpose is to evaluate,in 20 patients, if the sentinel node(s) in melanoma can be detected by lymph contrast ultrasound. In comparing the patients will also get lymph-scintigraphy and ...
The goal of this clinical research is to learn if an ultrasound contrast agent called OPTISON (perflutren protein type A) is effective in finding sentinel lymph nodes before surgery. Cont...
The present study aims at investigating the feasibility, the detection rate and the negative predictive value of sentinel node in predicting the presence or absence of lymph node metastasi...
Evaluation of removal of Sentinel lymph nodes only for detection of pelvic lymph node metastases in high risk and low risk endometrial cancer.
First lymph node to receive drainage from the primary tumor. SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY is performed to determine early METASTASIS status because cancer cells may appear first in the sentinel node.
A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.
The historic designation for scrofula (TUBERCULOSIS, LYMPH NODE). The disease is so called from the belief that it could be healed by the touch of a king. This term is used only for historical articles using the name "king's evil", and is to be differentiated from scrofula as lymph node tuberculosis in modern clinical medicine. (From Webster, 3d ed)
