Ultrasound Gided Biopsies

 

Stereotactic Core Biopsy

This minimally invasive procedure eliminates unnecessary breast surgery. The patient's surgeon, a radiologist and technologists work together as a team to perform this relatively painless procedure. The patient lies in the prone position on a table and a core biopsy needle extracts tissue samples from the breast. Samples are then sent to our histology lab for pathology findings. 

 

Ultrasound Guided Biopsies

If a lump is found to be solid or with solid components, the radiologist may order an ultrasound guided core biopsy to extract samples of the tissue for pathology. If the lump is fluid filled, a cyst aspiration may be recommended. The size and discomfort of the cyst determines the need for this procedure.
