Dublin, OH) and staining with blue dye. A 2-3 cm incision is made over the marked area of greatest activity as detected by the hand-held gamma probe. The incision is carried down through the subcutaneous fat in a tunnel-like fashion, and the fascia is incised. The lymph nodes usually reside beneath the fascia. Using the gamma probe, the SLNs can be located by detecting increased radioactivity in counts per second with respect to orientation. Often, the blue dye-stained lymphatics would be seen, confirming the findings of the radioisotope activity, with resultant removal of the SLN.
