About this book

Atlas of Selective Lymphadenectomy for Melanoma, Breast Cancer and Colon Cancer emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach combining the experiences of a nuclear medicine physician, surgeon, and pathologist. This is an important reference also for researchers and clinicians who want to become familiar with sentinel lymph node mapping. The underlying thesis in solid tumor biology is that metastasis in general starts in an orderly progression with lymphatic spread first to the sentinel lymph node (SLN) in the nearest lymph node basin. Therefore, the logical approach is to harvest that specific SLN for thorough analysis.

Reviews

"Sentinel lymph node evaluation has had a significant impact on the staging of patients with select solid tumors. This text reviews the rationale, technical considerations, and results of this revolutionary procedure. Leading experts in the field discuss its application for melanoma, breast, and colon cancer and comment on potential future indications."
(Steven T. Rosen, MD, Series Editor)
"Dr. Leong and his colleagues have compiled an excellent review of the extant literature regarding lymphatic mapping. The personal commentary and case reviews are excellent and provide the reader with first-hand technical aids to help achieve the experience required for accurate lymphatic mapping and selective lymphadenectomy of sentinel nodes. The text is an excellent resource for students, residents, and attending surgeons in the current state of the art of lymphatic mapping and will provide an excellent guide to help improve mapping success."
(Charles E. Cox, MD, Professor of Surgery, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, USA)
