  • University College NHS Foundation Trust and University College London

Abstract

In 1998 a young surgeon joined the Institute of Nuclear Medicine, for a 3 year program leading to a PhD. It became the most successful collaboration between Nuclear Medicine and Surgical Oncology, in a field which barely a few months later, had been baptised by a most eminent Dutch surgeon, S. Meijers as “the most significant advance in surgical oncology – 1st International SLN Congress-Amsterdam 1999”. The young surgeon was Mohammad Keshtgar, now an eminent breast specialist, his profile recently reviewed in Lancet Oncology July 2011.
