Stereotactic-guided Core Biopsy

General

Stereotactic-guided (X-ray guided) biopsy is indicated when ambiguous mammographic findings cannot be localized by ultrasound. This applies especially for calcium containing lesions. The examination can be done as a core biopsy (gun technique) or vacuum technique.

Cancer in situ is often manifested as calcium deposits in mammograms. The method is therefore vital for the diagnosis of this condition.

Indications

  • Diagnostic

Goal

  • To clarify whether a mammography lesion is benign or malignant, and if possible, to determine the diagnosis.
