Purpose The usage of radioactive Technetium(99m) (Tc-99m) colloid for the purpose of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in early breast cancer is considered the gold standard in Germany. However, new tracers, such as near-infrared (NIR) imaging agents like indocyanine green (ICG) could offer an alternative in future, as they overcome drawbacks associated with radioactive Technetium(99m) (Tc-99m) ...
