Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Evaluation of an Integrated Imaging System For In Vivo Detection of Fluorescently Labeled Lesions
This is a pilot study to test and characterize the ability of the Smart Goggles system to detect fluorescently labeled sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs). Specifically, this study will test the sensitivity and specificity of the Smart Goggles to detect indocyanine green (ICG) accumulation in sentinel lymph nodes of breast cancer patients after peritumoral injection of ICG (Cardio-GreenTM), under standard-of-care application conditions.
Primary Objective -Positive fluorescence signal in SLNs imaged by the Smart Goggles system.
Confirmation of ICG within lesions per histologic tissue exam by SLN biopsy.
Comparison of lesions detected by the Smart Goggles vs. lesions detected using SPY/Quest/PDE vs. gold standard of gamma probe and blue dyes.
-Collection of preliminary data for a future, powered study for lymphatic mapping in breast cancer
Study Design This is an unpowered pilot study to determine the sensitivity of the new Smart Goggles device, for detection of ICG fluorescence in SLNs of breast cancers in a clinical setting. The investigators have chosen to examine ICG as the contrast agent and breast cancer as the clinical target, because this agent is FDA-approved and is regularly used for lymphatic mapping (skin cancers). The study team will be applying ICG for the same length of time as the standard-of-care procedures including radiotracers and blue dyes. The study involves a single visit, lasting ~3-4 hours total. Multiple SLN biopsies will be performed if multiple SLNs are identified.

Subjects who have been treated with radiation therapy on the chest.
Has had previous sentinel lymph node biopsy
Has a known hypersensitivity to ICG, methylene blue and 99mTc-colloid.
