Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a nonradioactive inducible magnetic seed system (Magseed, Endomag) for preoperative localization of nonpalpable breast lesions.

CONCLUSION:

All of the 73 seeds placed in the first 4 months of clinical use were successfully placed and all were successfully retrieved intraoperatively. The mean time from seed placement to surgery was 3 days. Early clinical experience suggests that Magseed is an effective and accurate means of preoperative breast lesion localization.
