RE: Sentinel node

From:"Gutierrez, Juan"

Six levels each block.  For breast cases we ran Cam 5.2 antibody, and for
melanoma we ran MART-1 and HMB-45 immunos.

What procedure is used for sentinel node biopsies?  (How many levels,
special stains, grossing technique?)
And, if possible, if anyone has a medical reference, please forward
information to me.  Thank you.
