Figure 1

Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) using indocyanine green fluorescence imaging: (a) The periareolar injection site and afferent lymphatic duct were clearly observed. (b) A skin incision was made at the point where the fluorescence disappeared and a strong fluorescence could be seen easily after incision. (c) A lymphatic flow in the axilla was identified. (d) The resected SLNs with fluorescence imaging were reconfirmed by the photodynamic eye (PDE).
