AW: [Histonet] Sentinel node protocol?

Last year we started a program for the breast sentinels with serial cuts in
50 µm steps. The first and the last were HE stained, the others
Pancytokeratin. The pathologists wanted to see, if there is any significant
differenc in the results to our former protocol with 250µm steps.
Now we turned again to the larger distance.

We also do frozens on the half part of the sentinel if it is smaller than 5
mm, and on the middle 2mm-part if it is larger. We perform also one slide as
rapid ck-pan. 
But for all good reasons to get the information of the frozen, we cannot be
sure about the result until the last immuno-slide.

I was interested in knowing what other hospital labs use for their sentinel
lymph node protocols for breast cases and melanoma cases. I think our
hospital's is a little over kill.
