Breast Biopsy

NEEDLE LOCALIZATION

This technique localizes a breast abnormality seen on imaging studies to allow for accurate surgical excision. The procedure, which uses a thin needle to insert a thinner hooked wire to the area of concern, may be guided by mammography, ultrasound or MRI. The breast imagers at HerSpace use digital mammography when the procedure requires x-ray guidance in order to decrease procedure time and patient discomfort. It is performed prior to a lumpectomy in patients recently diagnosed with breast cancer by core needle biopsy and prior to initial surgical diagnostic biopsy for abnormalities that cannot be biopsied using less invasive techniques.
