Description

Identifying the sentinel lymph node (SLN) provides critical cancer staging information, affecting adjuvant therapy recommendations and patient prognosis. This study compared three SLN mapping techniques--CT lymphography, vital dye injection, and intraoperative lymphoscintigraphy. The purpose was to assess the feasibility and reliability of all three techniques in a population of dogs with naturally occurring head and neck cancers.

Objectives

Learning objective:
• The sentinel lymph node is the first node to which a tumor drains. However, identifying a lymph node as the sentinel lymph node does not equate to the presence of metastatic disease in the node; cytology or histopathology must be pursued.
• Multiple peritumoral injections techniques are available for lymph node detection, including 1) lymphoscintigraphy using sulfur colloid and a gamma camera or hand held probe, 2) methylene blue injection and visual inspection, and 3) CT lymphography with injection of iodinated contrast.
• CT lymphography is easy to perform and has few complications, but detects the sentinel lymph node less frequently that lymphoscintigraphy and methylene blue injection. The combination of two sentinel lymph detection techniques is recommended.
