Radionuclide identification of the SLN and radioguided surgery is the method of choice in most of the centers like ours.Recent advances have improved SLN detection rates and provided easier identification of SLNs in especially difficult cases that may require additional SPECT/CT imaging, an imaging modality which helps with anatomical information in addition to planar gamma camera
imaging and intraoperative gamma probe localization (7).
Counts response from the gamma camera
at 10 cm distance from source to detector has been found linear relationship with the dose from the calibrator.
Dilon's cornerstone product, the Dilon 6800, is a high-resolution, small field-of-view gamma camera
, optimized to perform Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI), a molecular breast imaging procedure which images the metabolic activity of breast lesions through radiotracer uptake.
