Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of the SAVI SCOUT surgical guidance system, which uses a nonradioactive infrared-activated electromagnetic wave reflector, to localize and excise nonpalpable breast lesions. We evaluated the system's use in 15 nonpalpable breast lesions in 13 patients. CONCLUSION. Image-guided placement was successful for 15 of 15 (100%) reflectors. The fnal pathologic analysis found that lesion excision was successful, including fve malignancies with negative margins. No patients required reexcision or experienced complications. SAVI SCOUT is a feasible method for breast lesion localization and excision.
