The increasing number of non-palpable breast lesions and the trend to perform less aggressive surgical procedures have prompted the development of radioguided surgery in breast lesions, alone (ROLL) or with sentinel node detection. We present a 55-year-old woman with four mammary lesions diagnosed by magnetic resonance. The ROLL technique allowed not only their characterisation but also the study of the lymphatic drainage of malignant lesions. Moreover, it was useful as a guide for surgical biopsy of the benign lesions. The combination of different colloid size allowed an accurate study of each lesion and avoided radical surgery. The applications of radioguided surgery are ever increasing. Individualisation of each indication will benefit a greater number of patients.
