Figure 2: Operative illustration of fluorescein guided sentinel node mapping. (a) Injection of combined tracer fluorescein 0.125 ml plus methylene blue one ml diluted in 4 ml of normal saline, injected half in intradermal plane and half in subareolar plane. (b) Dermal lymphatic plexus delineated with blue and yellow dyes seen on white light. (c) Fluorescent lymphatics shining with blue LED light (480 nm wavelength). (d) Incision along lateral mammary skin crease. (e) Greenish blue lymphatics and lymph node seen with white light. (f) Fluorescent lymphatic duct and lymph node shining with blue LED light
