Fig. 4. Possible scenarios of ICG distribution at the injection site and the sequential lymph nodes. (A) Distribution of ICG immediately after injection. (B) A scenario of one day after injection, ICG at the injection site and the sentinel lymph node is washed out first, resulting in increased stain in the 2nd or distant tier’s lymph nodes. (C) The other scenario of one day after injection, ICG is still continuously provided to the 1st lymph nodes, and ICG was washed out of the 2nd lymph nodes. This scenario results in more specific sentinel lymph node navigation.
