Lymphoscintigraphy Without Imaging

This procedure is for patients who will be given intradermal or subdermal injections only, and can be done outside the Nuclear Medicine Division, usually in the Operating Room. This is for patients who will NOT have imaging as part of this procedure. These are for patients with breast cancer and the injection is part of the sentinel lymph node identification.
