Abstract
Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy has gained attention as a method of minimizing the extent of neck dissection with a similar survival rate as elective neck dissection in oral cancer. Indocyanine green (ICG) imaging is widely used in the field of surgical oncology. Real-time ICG-guided SLN imaging has been widely used in minimally invasive surgeries for various types of cancers. Here, we provide an overview of conventional SLN biopsy and ICG-guided SLN mapping techniques for oral cancer. Although ICG has many strengths, it still has limitations regarding its potential use as an ideal compound for SLN mapping. The development of novel fluorophores and imaging technology is needed for accurate identification of SLNs, which will allow precision surgery that would reduce morbidities and increase patient survival.
