Lymph Node Mapping and Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy

Advances in Lymph Node Mapping and Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
Sponsored by the SNMMI Outreach Committee

Speakers
Heather Neuman, MD, University of Wisconsin Health
Renee Moadel, MD, Montefiore Medical Center
David C. Blea, CNMT, CPET, Medical City Dallas

Course Summary
This course will include both a nuclear medicine perspective and a breast surgeon’s perspective on lymph node mapping and sentinel lymph node biopsy and the role of these procedures in patient management. Participants will have increased knowledge around the goals of lymph node imaging, mapping, and localization, including: (a) appropriate use criteria of lymphoscintigraphy and the clinical value it provides; (b) the clinical advanced and associated trial data on the use of radiotracers for lymph node mapping and localization in patients with breast cancer; and (c) integration of the latest evidence on the use of radiotracers in lymph node mapping and  localization and the selection of the appropriate radiotracers to optimize efficient resource utilization, patient experience, and patient outcomes.

Course Objectives
1. Examine appropriate use criteria of lymphoscintigraphy and the clinical value it provides
2. Explore the clinical advanced and associated trial data on the use of radiotracers for lymph node mapping and localization in patients with breast cancer
3. Integrate the latest evidence on the use of radiotracers in lymph node mapping and  localization and the selection of the appropriate radiotracers to optimize efficient resource utilization, patient experience, and patient outcomes
