Wire Guided Localisation has been the traditional technique for occult breast lesions. However, ROLL has emerged as a safer alternative to WGL approach. ROLL provides an improvement on margin positive rates and offers better pain and cosmetic advantages to the patient combined with a shorter learning curves for both radiologists and surgeons. SNOLL adds to the advantages of the procedure by combining SLNB with ROLL hence offering an economic advantage. The use of ROLL as primary modality for occult lesion localisation is bound to increase with potential to replace WGL as the primary modality for such lesions.
