GAMMA PROBE TECHNOLOGY

In 2000, funds were raised to purchase the Gamma Probe for utilization during surgical procedures involving the lymph nodes. Prior to surgery, a radioactive tracer is injected into the breast tissue surrounding the tumor.

If the node is cancerous, the remaining lymph nodes are removed. If the node is not cancerous, the remaining lymph nodes are preserved and the patient is able to recover quickly from this minimally invasive surgery.
