SCOUT Localisation
Wide Local Excision

This is a new technology which replaces the traditional hook-wire localisation for small, non-palpable breast cancers. It involves placing a tiny ultrasound emitting device in the breast (smaller than a grain of rice) to help the surgeon locate the exact tumour site. This technique was first introduced in New Zealand by Josie Todd in 2022.
