With the introduction of screening mammography, the proportion of smaller, clinically recognised tumors has increased. In cases in which lesions cannot be palpated, a guidewire or a wireless marker is placed. Wire localization is associated with several limitations, despite its status as gold standard. Several wireless methods that meet these limitations have been developed. Methods that increase efficiency and patient satisfaction. This review provides an overview of the existing literature on intra-operative localization methods, and the risk of re-resection associated with excision of non-palpable mammary lesions.
