BREAST BIOPSY: ULTRASOUND GUIDED


WHAT IS ULTRASOUND GUIDED BREAST BIOPSY?

An ultrasound guided breast biopsy is performed to remove some cells—either surgically or through a less invasive procedure involving a hollow needle—from a suspicious area in the breast and examine them under a microscope to determine a diagnosis. Image-guided needle biopsy is not designed to remove the entire lesion, but most of a very small lesion may be removed in the process of biopsy.

Image-guided biopsy is performed when the abnormal area in the breast is too small to be felt, making it difficult to locate the lesion by hand (called palpation). In ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, ultrasound imaging is used to help guide the Radiologic Physician’s instruments to the site of the abnormal growth.
