A stereotactic biopsy uses
mammography, a special breast x-ray, to guide doctors to a
lump or abnormality that canít be felt or seen on
ultrasound, but that can be seen on the mammogram. It
creates a 3-D picture of the lumpís location to guide
the radiologist to the right area with maximum accuracy.
this procedure, for your comfort you will remain seated in
an upright position while the biopsy is performed. The
radiologist perform a core needle or vacuum assisted
biopsy laterally while your breast will be somewhat
compressed in the mammographic biopsy system.
