OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study is to review tomosynthesis-guided wire and seed needle localizations of the breast and axilla performed at our institution. CONCLUSION. Tomosynthesis-guided needle localizations were performed for 38 lesions, including 14 architectural distortions, five groups of calcifications, two focal asymmetries, three masses, four breast clips, and 10 axillary clips. All lesions were successfully removed at surgery, indicating that breast and axillary lesions can be precisely localized under tomosynthesis.
