Abstract

Objective: Wire-guided localization (WGL) is the preoperative localization method most commonly used before the surgical excision of non-palpable breast lesions (NPBLs). Recently, radioguided occult lesion localization (ROLL) has emerged as an alternative to WGL. We sought to compare the efficacy of ROLL with that of WGL for the preoperative localization of NPBLs and to assess our experience encountered as ROLL is implemented at our institution.
