Primary Outcome Measures:
- Sentinel Lymph node (SLN) detection [ Time Frame: 36 months ]Ability of peri-areolar or peri-tumoral fluorescein to detect SLNs in patients with operable breast cancer.
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Fluorescence detection [ Time Frame: 36 months ]To evaluate the ability to detect fluorescein fluorescence transdermally with a fluorometer.
- Correlation between two radiation intensities [ Time Frame: 36 months ]To evaluate if there is a correlation between SLN ex-vivo fluorescent intensity and SLN ex-vivo gamma radiation intensity.
- Correlation between intensity and metastasis [ Time Frame: 36 months ]To evaluate if there is a correlation between SLN ex-vivo fluorescent intensity and SLN metastasis.
- Fluorescence detection after processing [ Time Frame: 36 months ]To evaluate if fluorescein fluorescence can be detected in the SLN after fixation and histological processing.
- Number of patients with adverse events [ Time Frame: 36 months ]To evaluate the safety of peri-areolar or peri-tumoral fluorescein injections.
