Findings and procedure details
For each Bx-WFL procedure 2016 01, August - 2019 01 May, age, image-modality, location, device complication, time to surgery, and surgical result was recorded. Descriptive statistics for age and time to surgery were calculated using spreadsheet software (Excel 2013, Microsoft).
65 female patients age 20-82 (mean 49.2 years), underwent 84 Bx-WFL SCOUT (47 breast, 37 axilla), via Ultrasound (83) or Mammography (1) guidance. All SCOUTS were excised with 0 device related complications in the 52/65 who completed surgery 4-270 (average 106) days after WFL. All 33/33 MRI exams demonstrated WFL SCOUT and target tissue with no significant signal artifact.
