The accuracy of the system is based largely on the module RONNAmarker that is a geometric interface between the robot localization procedure and CT or MRI.
The positioning and localization procedure for needle localization is the same as that for biopsy.
It is possible to display some supplementary information on the localization procedure (figure3), in click on button details; this information informs us on:
In a careful cross-comparison, Cometto-Muniz and Cain found that the localization procedure produced equivalent results among normosmic and anosmic subjects, as well as results equivalent to forced-choice discrimination among the latter group (26).

1, we have already seen this tool significantly impact our lesion localization procedure process," said Kara Carlson, MD, Medical Director, Evergreen Breast Center, Kirkland, WA.
Catherine Ronaghan, Medical Director of Arrington Comprehensive Breast Center in Lubbock, TX states, "Large core breast biopsy has replaced the wire localization procedure in my practice.
When a mammogram indicates an area of concern and the breast needs to be examined surgically, a needle localization procedure may be performed.
Biopsy Sciences develops new and innovative products for the medial market including the HydroMARK, a breast biopsy site marker that helps patients by replacing lengthy mammogram-guided wire localization procedures with quick, accurate ultrasound-guided localization procedures that are more comfortable for patients.
Many facilities use similar chairs for needle localization procedures.
Already considered to be the gold standard in digital biopsy and spot imaging, Opdima is designed to perform quick and efficient stereotactic needle and core biopsies, as well as localization procedures.
Globalization Support: To better support international users of the Globus Toolkit, who comprise a large percentage of the overall Globus development community, Univa is leading an initiative to help define the requirements and appropriate approaches for Globus software globalization, such as internalization coding guidelines, localization procedures and a review of all components upon which the Globus Toolkit depends.
