Nowadays, accurate knowledge of regional and local lymphatic system is necessary for clinical staging and prognosis of cancers, especially carcinomas. On the other hand, we consider the lymphatic system to be the housekeeping of the body and we have entrusted it with the task of taking care of the cells and organs of the body.
In such cases, the knowledge of the lymphatic system and its non-destruction is summarized in the process of recognizing the precursor or sentinel lymph node. More than sixty years of human experience have made this diagnostic method one of the surgical standards in various cancers, especially head and neck, melanoma and breast. The most appropriate method is to inject technetium-99 and detect the resulting gamma rays in the lymph nodes. This action as a discovery and evaluation of the gland or scout glands is an integral part of cancer surgery today. The gamma ray detector that is emitted from the lymph nodes is a gamma probe. This device was made by the efforts of Parto Negar Persia Company and our scientist colleague, Dr. Ay in Iran, and is available to surgeon colleagues under the name (SURGEOGUIDE II).
As a cancer surgery specialist and teacher, I have been in the process of producing and using it from day one. I have been working with this device daily for more than eight years and I am completely satisfied with it.
