I apologize upfront because I know that this has probably been discussed a great deal but I can't seem to get any information out of the archives..... What precautions do you take in Histology/Pathology for sentinel node biopsies? Any concerns for pregnancy?
The information that I have is years old but it says that:
Specimens should be transported in lead lined container
Biopsies should remain in the lead lined container for least 8 hours (large specimens longer)
Like I said, this is old and I'm sure out of date.
