There are several possible applications of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) concept with different technological aspects such as individualized surgical management of solid tumors, multidisciplinary treatments, and novel therapeutic approaches. To achieve these clinical applications, multidisciplinary teamwork with surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, and pathologists would be critically required. Interdisciplinary issues should be resolved in order to develop optimal standard procedures of SLN dissection for various solid tumors.
