Abstract

Implanted contraceptive capsules occasionally cannot be removed by means of palpation with local dissection, and imaging guidance is necessary. The authors report obtaining a single anteroposterior radiograph of the upper arm followed by sonography to localize the capsule and to allow precise marking of the skin over the capsules. The method can be performed quickly and is inexpensive and effective, allowing the localization and removal procedures to be scheduled independently.
