Ultrasound-Guided Core Breast Biopsy

Minimally invasive breast biopsy is the standard of care today, replacing the open surgical biopsies of the past. When a biopsy is recommended to test for breast cancer, you may be able to choose a minimally invasive alternative to surgery known as image-guided needle biopsy. This is a technique that does not require surgery.  When the lesion of concern is visible by ultrasound, ultrasound guided core biopsy is the technique of choice.
