Multimodal US-Gamma Imaging using Collaborative Robotics for Cancer Staging Biopsies 
Abstract:
Purpose: The staging of female breast cancer requires detailed information about the level of cancer spread through the lymphatic system. Common practice to obtain this information for patients with early stage cancer is sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy, where LNs are radioactively identified for surgical removal and subsequent histological analysis.
