Abstract Introduction: the aim of this work was to quantify the effects of injection volume at different technetium-99m specific radiotracer doses on its lymphatic movement in animal model.Procedures: Effects of injection volume (50, 100 mu l) at different doses (0.05, 0.135, 0.22 nmol) on popliteal node (PN) detection were studied in rats. the radiotracer under study was (99m)Technetium-cysteine-mannose-dextran conjugate (30 kDa).Results: At 0.05 nmol dose, higher PN uptake was observed at 50 mu l injection volume (2.6 fold increase). Conversely, at 0.135 nmol dose, an increase of radiotracer retention in PN was achieved at 100 mu l volume, 78% higher than 50 mu l. However, at 0.22 nmol close, the injection volume changes did not influence on the PN uptake. Considering as suitable radiotracer performance: high PN uptake and extraction, better combinations were 0.05 nmol/50 mu l, 0.135 nmo1/100 mu l, 0.22/50 mu l.Conclusion: Suitable performances could be reached by proper combinations of dose, injection volume and concentration for a specific radiotracer used in sentinel lymph node detection.
