Determination and removal of a draining / sentinel lymph node in patients with cutaneous melanoma. A New Way for our Patients!

The Bulgarian Society of Dermatological Surgery (BULSDS) introduces the determination of a first draining/ sentinel lymph node by radioactive labeling with technetium, followed by SPECT-CT in order to maximize its exact localization and visualization.

At the same time, a removal of a sentinel lymph node is performed in combination with its intraoperative express histological examination – express frozen histological sections (Gefrier).
