45 Gy assuming a volume of distribution of 1 ml. This is below the threshold dose for deterministic radiation effects; thus, no erythema or other effect should be observed. In our institution, the injections are given intradermally around the excision-biopsy site, for melanoma patients, or peritumorally around the breast cancer the day before surgery.

Using the hands alone, without forceps, and operating on the same day as LSG, a surgeon would need to perform in the order of 270 procedures a year to approach the limits of allowed radiation dose to the ﬁngers. ”29 This deﬁnition is open to misinterpretation, especially if there is more than one SLN.
