Short communication: Prospective assessment of a new graduated hookwire for the localization of impalpable breast lesions.

Abstract

The benefits of the addition of site specific variable graduations to a conventional mammographic localizing wire were assessed in a prospective multidistrict study. Six surgeons and five radiologists localized lesions in 31 patients in three District General Hospitals. The advantages of the graduated wire were shown to be greater ease and accuracy of radiological localization with easier surgical excision and a smaller resected breast specimen.
