DOI : Background: Due to the spread of mammographic screening programs, a constant increase of clinically-occult breast cancer diagnosis has been registered. A correct approach to nonpalpable breast lesions requires an accurate intra-operative localization in order to achieve a complete surgical resection.
Background: Breast-conserving surgery BCS is considered the gold-standard treatment for early breast cancer. Ultrasound-guided percutaneous biopsy or stereotactic biopsy of a breast lesion allows preoperative histological diagnosis. Various techniques have been proposed for identifying non-palpable breast tumors, but the most popular method is the wire-guided localization WGL technique.
Study record managers: refer to the Data Element Definitions if submitting registration or results information. Each year the Danish mammography-screening programme identifies a large number of patients with small non-palpable breast cancers or precancerous lesions. The majority of these patients are suitable for breast conserving surgery BCS.

Multifocal, non-palpable, wire-guided localization, breast conservation therapy, radioguided occult lesion localization. Background: Breast conservation therapy BCT is the standard of care for early stage breast cancer. The procedure can be a challenge for the surgeon if the lesion is non-palpable.

Breast cancer represents around In Spain about 32, new breast cancers are diagnosed every year and in4, new cases were registered in our autonomous region. Wire marker placement is the commonest method for locating impalpable breast lesions preoperatively.
Screening mammography as an adjunct to physical examination led to the discovery of radiographically suspicious but nonpalpable breast lesions. Needle localization of the lesion preoperatively in the mammography suite followed by breast biopsy led to the diagnosis of 64 nonpalpable carcinomas, including 25 invasive, 16 minimally invasive, and 23 noninvasive cancers. Noninvasive and minimally invasive cancers were microscopic.
