High-volume surgeons identified more SLNs with IOGP (at the AMC) than without (at the SSCs). They also were more efficient than low-volume surgeons when blue dye alone was used. Low-volume surgeons were almost as efficient as high-volume surgeons when they used IOGP. Optimal identification of SLNs requires nuclear medicine facilities.
