Hello all,

I apologize upfront because I know that this has probably been discussed a
great deal but I can't seem to get any information out of the archives.....
What precautions do you take in Histology/Pathology for sentinel node
biopsies?  Any concerns for pregnancy?  

The information that I have is years old but it says that:
	Specimens should be transported in lead lined container
	Biopsies should remain in the lead lined container for least 8 hours
(large specimens longer)

Like I said, this is old and I'm sure out of date.
