VJVirtual | Why are new seed-based breast tumor localization technologies better than wire methods?

Edward St John, MBBS, FRCS, PhD, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, shares insights into the value of new seed-based localization technologies that are becoming increasingly used in place of metal anchor wires. The use of wires for tumor localization comes with complications, including patient discomfort, wire displacement and removal issues, and logistic challenges given their need for insertion on the day of surgery. A growing number of seed-based devices are becoming available which can be implanted into the breast ahead of surgery and circumvent many of the disadvantages of wire methods. This interview was recorded via an online conference call with The Video Journal of Oncology (VJOncology).
