To assess the diagnostic accuracy of sentinel lymph node biopsy in the identification of pelvic lymph node involvement in women with apparent early stage endometrial cancer.
- To compare the diagnostic accuracy of different detection methods (Tc-99m with or without methylene or patent blue dye versus near infrared fluorescence tracers, such as indicyanine green (ICG)) and injection sites (subserosal versus cervical versus combined subserosal and cervical).
- To compare the accuracy of sentinel lymph node detection by lymph node basin studied, i.e. pelvic versus para-aortic region.
This is a protocol.
