The purpose is to evaluate,in 20 patients, if the sentinel node(s) in melanoma can be detected by lymph contrast ultrasound. In comparing the patients will also get lymph-scintigraphy and sentinel node detection wiht blue dye.

The goal is to improve the method for detecting sentinel node(s) in melanoma.
