Axillary sentinel node identification in breast cancer patients: degree of radioactivity present at biopsy is critical

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The radioactivity present in the patient (Act(rem) ) at sentinel node (SN) biopsy will depend on injected activity amount as well as on the time interval from tracer injection to biopsy, which both show great variations in the literature. The purpose of this study was to analyse the influence of varying Act(rem) levels on the outcome of axillary SN biopsy in patients with breast cancer (BC).
