BACKGROUND The objective of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of radio-guided occult lesion localization (ROLL) in breast-conserving surgery for nonpalpable breast cancer. METHODS Altogether 215 breast cancer patients were included in a prospective study. Ultrasonographically guided intratumoral injection of radioactive tracer was used for tumor localization in 64 patients with nonpalpable tumors, visible in breast ultrasonography (the ROLL group). Nonpalpable tumors, visible only in… CONTINUE READING
