Feasibility of magnetic marker localisation for non-palpable breast cancer
a b s t r a c t
Objectives: Accurate tumour localisation is essential for breast-conserving surgery of non-palpable tu- mours. Current localisation technologies are associated with disadvantages such as logistical challenges and migration issues (wire guided localisation) or legislative complexities and high administrative burden (radioactive localisation). We present MAgnetic MArker LOCalisation (MaMaLoc), a novel tech- nology that aims to overcome these disadvantages using a magnetic marker and a magnetic detection probe. This feasibility study reports on the ﬁrst experience with this new technology for breast cancer localisation.
