Abstract

Determination of needle length for needle localization of nonpalpable breast lesions prior to surgical excision biopsy may occasionally be problematic. A method for more accurate needle length determination is presented for use when uncertainty arises. This method was evaluated in 46 consecutive lesions targeted for excision biopsy following mammographically guided needle localization.
