Brief Summary:

To evaluate the use of superparamagnetic iron oxide (Magtrace®) as a tracer in sentinel node biopsy in malignant melanoma of the extremities, and to evaluate the possible role of Magtrace®-MRI for staging.

Primary objective:

• To evaluate if Magtrace®/Sentimag® can be used to identify SN in malignant melanoma with the same diagnostically reliability as the currently used method of Technetium 99m and Patent blue.

Secondary objectives:

• To evaluate if Magtrace®-MRI can predict sentinel node status in melanoma. This is a feasibility phase I, interventional single arm study. All patients included in the study will receive the same management.

20 patients will be included in the study. An enrollment time of 6-12 months is expected.

Primary endpoint • To determine the detection rate of Magtrace®/Sentimag® in comparison to SNB using technetium and blue dye in patients with malignant melanoma of the extremities.

Secondary endpoint

• To evaluate Magtrace®-MRI sensitivity and specificity as a preoperative tool for staging in malignant melanoma.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Patients with melanoma of the extremities included in the protocol. SLNB will be performed with the addition of magtrace (SPIO) injection, 0.2 ml around previous scar. The patients will undergo MRI of the involved basin (Axilla-groin)and receive the SpIO injection the day before SLN biopsy. A separate SPIO MRI will be performed before the operation. All patients will receive all 3 methods for SLN identification as described in the protocol.
Device: SLN Biopsy with Magtrace®/Sentimag®
Identification of SLN by means of Magtrace®/Sentimag® and SPIO-MRI

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Identification of Sentinel node with Magtrace®/Sentimag® [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    More than 95% success rate for identification of the Sentinel node with Magtrace®/Sentimag®
