The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of registered breast MRI and ultrasound data in the planning of breast conserving surgery via guide wire insertion. Following MRI examination participants underwent US/MRI registration proceeding to guide wire localization. To aid co-registration 3-4 common points were identifiable in both the US and MR images. Root mean square deviation values and a qualitative assessment of global registration were recorded. All US/MRI registrations were successful. These results demonstrate that the registration of MR and US data to aid in the insertion of surgical guide wires is feasible.
