Preoperative localization of nonpalpable breast nodules – which method to choose?



BACKGROUND: Along with the introduction of screening mammography more and more breast cancers are non-palpable in examination. To perform breast conserving therapy (BCT) such tumors need to be localized correctly preoperatively.
METHOD: The study presents the most frequently used methods of non-palpable breast tumors localization such as: wire-guided localization (WGL), ultrasonographic localization and radioguided occult lesion localization (ROLL).
RESULTS: All presented methods allow preoperative marking of suspected non-palpable breast lesions with great precision in favour of ROLL.
CONCLUSIONS: ROLL technique is the best from among those currently used when considering comparative analyses. Additionally, it is the promising method in combination with simultaneous marking of the sentinel node.
