Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging using indocyanine green (ICG) has been used for breast cancer surgery such as sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping and breast cancer localization.

In this study, our hypothesis are as following:

  1. As inject only indocyanine green (ICG), it provide the surgeon visual guidance to ensure better outcome.
  2. indocyanine green (ICG) permitted accurate preoperative and intraoperative detection of the SLNs as well as nonpalpable benign brest lesion in patients with breast cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • non-palpable lesion localization rate [ Time Frame: up to 6month ]
    non-palpable lesion localization rate = number of patients complete excision of lesion / 20 enrolled patients

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • lesion of resection size, completeness of resection [ Time Frame: up to 6month ]
    actual lesion of width*height*length / resection lesion of width*height*length

Other Outcome Measures:
  • physical assess [ Time Frame: following up a week to 6 month ]
    number of patients with pigmented skin lesion, number of patients with complication, number of patients with breast lymphedema, number of patients with residual breast lesion using breast ultrsound

Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: June 2014
Study Completion Date: May 2015
Primary Completion Date: April 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Indocyanine green, ICG (ICG-fluorescence)

  • ICG is the most commonly used fluorophore which approve by FDA.
  • NIR-F imaging with ICG could be used in various surgeries. For example, SLN mapping in breast cancer and localization of liver metastasis, especially superficial lesion
  • Contains sodium iodide, patients who have history of allergy to iodides should be used as caution.

Nonpalpable benign brest lesion localization

  • New method for the localization and resection of non-palpable breast lesions.
  • The breast lesion was correctly localized, and the area of ICG corresponded well to the site of the lesions.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample

Exclusion Criteria:

  • nonpalpable benign breast lesion ≥ 2cm in patients with breast cancer.
  • pregnancy
  • history of severe allergy to ICG(Indocyanine Green)
  • iode hypersensitiveness
