We describe a novel technique for marking non-palpable breast lesions with the aim of selecting the best approach prior to performing a biopsy. The technique employs a new coil, specifically designed for breast localization, guided by stereotaxy.

This technique is reserved for selected cases in which the lesion is seen peripherally in only one mammographic view with negative or non-conclusive ultrasonographic results, and deeply seated after a stereotactic study.

Once the coil is released beside the lesion, the shortest approach from the skin may be employed to perform the biopsy. To our knowledge, this is the first report of this technique.
