RADIO-GUIDED SURGERY PROCEDURES

RADIO-GUIDED SURGERY PROCEDURES

CAT cirurgia01

SENTINEL LYMPH NODE SURGICAL DETECTION

DESCRIPTION

Evaluation of the lymphatic drainage of a neoplasm (melanoma, breast cancer, head and neck, vulva, cervix, colon or rectum, thyroid, among others).

PREPARATION

Prior to surgery (between 4 and 24 hours before), a lymphogammagraphy with intra-or peritumoral injection (or retro-steroid in the case of the breast) should be performed to get the images of the sentinel lymph node.

INDICATIONS

Intraoperative detection of the sentinel lymph node, the first lymphatic drainage node of the territory where the invasive primary tumor is located.

DURATION OF
PROCEDURE

1 day.

CAT cirurgia03

SURGICAL RADIO-DETECTION (NON-SENTINEL)

DESCRIPTION

Surgical radio-detection of malignant tissues through the use of a probe.

PREPARATION

Variable according to pathology.

INDICATIONS

Radio-guided surgery involves the use of various radiopharmaceuticals administered to the patient prior to the surgical procedure, to help the surgeon in it.

Some indications are:

  • Breast neo (ROLL).
  • Surgery for hyperparathyroidism (with 99mTc-MIBI).
  • DTC surgery (with I-131/I-123/18F-FDG).
  • Surgery of neuroendocrine tumors (Octreotide, MIBG).

DURATION OF
PROCEDURE

Variable according to pathology.
