Abstract

We describe the history of, indications for, and techniques involved in MRI-guided needle localization (MRI-NL). MRI-NL continues to be a safe, effective method of sampling lesions that are only detected with MRI, particularly for anatomically challenging lesions such as those near the chest wall, the nipple, the skin, and/or in close proximity to implants.
