[Histonet] Sentinel nodes


Good afternoon everyone,
We routinely cut our negative sentinel node biopsies shallow, cutting 5 levels (mounting levels 2 and 4 for IHC), approximately 30 microns between levels.  Now, a pathologist read that "most institutions" are cutting them deeper, approximately 100 microns between levels.  This is totally an INFORMAL poll, but I would appreciate any feedback from the community.  I will check the archives as well, but thought I would get the question out there before everyone heads off to Kentucky:-)  Thanks.  Jennifer
