- InterventionsOn the day before surgery (approximately 18 hours) patients will receive 4-6 transurethral injections with a total of 2mL hybrid tracer (240MBq) around the tumor (in case of a solitary lesion) or divided over the bladder (in case of multiple tumors). In both cases the hybrid tracer is injected into the detrusor muscle of the bladder under cystoscopy guidance using an endoscopic needle. After the injection lymphoscintigraphy will be performed at 15 min and 2 hours, followed by SPECT/CT imaging at 2 hours.

Intraoperatively sentinel nodes will be identified via combined radio- and fluorescence guidance. For radioguidance, a (laparoscopic) gamma probe will be used. Fluorescence imaging during the operation will be performed using a fluorescence camera for open surgery or for laparoscopic surgery. Additionally, during robot-assisted procedures, the da Vinci SI integrated fluorescence camera (Firefly) will be used. The declipseSPECT navigation system will be used to locate the sentinel nodes intraoperatively.
- Primary outcomeEvaluate the accuracy of the sentinel node biopsy procedure for nodal staging in patients with non-metastatic (cN0M0) muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
- Secondary outcome1. Evaluation of the feasibility of sentinel node mapping in bladder cancer patients using the hybrid tracer (ICG-99mTc-nanocolloid);
2. Evaluation of intraoperative fluorescence detection of the SNs via fluorescence imaging;
3. Evaluation of the feasibility of sentinel node localization via intraoperative (SPECT/CT-based and freehandSPECT).
- TimepointsInjection (t=0); Preoperative imaging (t=15 min, and t=2 hours); Intraoperative imaging (t=>3hours)

- Brief summaryRadical cystectomy combined with an extended pelvic lymph node dissection is considered the gold standard for staging in non-metastatic muscle-invasive bladder cancer. The sentinel node procedure is an alternative method to locally stage bladder cancer. In this study we aim to evaluate the sentinel node procedure in bladder cancer patients who are scheduled for radical cystectomy and extended pelvic lymph node dissection.
