Ultrasound-guided Core Biopsy

General

Ultrasound-guided core biopsy is utilized for diagnosing inconclusive findings in the breast, either as an independent method or as a supplementary examination after a fine needle biopsy. In most breast diagnostic centers, core biopsy is preferred as a diagnostic method before breast cancer surgery.

There is an indication for core biopsy if the cytology result does not provide a conclusive diagnosis, or if there is lack of agreement between cytology results, image diagnostics, or clinical examination.

Indications

  • Diagnostics
  • Special analysis of a known malignant lesion

Goal

  • To conclude whether a lesion, palpable or non-palpable, is benign or malignant.
