Title: Radar reflector guidance system in breast surgery: A single-institution feasibility study

Abstract: Mammography breast cancer screening programs and continuing improvements in early diagnosis of the disease have led to more frequent detection of nonpalpable breast lesions. The commonly used technique in guiding the surgical removal of these lesions is hook wire-guided localization (WGL). However, the WGL procedure has been criticized for the last years. Key disadvantages of WGL are possible wire transection, wire migration before or during surgery, patient discomfort and pneumothorax. Over the last decade, alternatives to wire localization have emerged. In this study the authors present their initial experience with a wireless, nonradioactive, wave reflection implant system that enables surgeons to safely and accurately remove breast lesions (Tab. 2, Fig. 4, Ref. 20).
