In this study, the sentinel lymph node biopsy will be performed with radioactive tracer (technetium-99 sulfur colloid) and blue dye, which is standard of care. Decisions will be made during surgery about which lymph nodes to remove using information from the radioactive tracer and blue dye alone.
For this research, ICG fluorescence dye during participant’s surgery will also be used. After anesthesia has started, the ICG fluorescence dye will be injected in the breast along at the edge of the areola in the same location as the radioactive tracer and blue dye injections. The breast and axilla will then be imaged with the Asimov Imaging Platform to look for the sentinel lymph nodes.
