Stereotactic breast biopsy

DS00983, MY00301, WO00031_IM04058-mcdc7_stereotactic_breast_biopsythu.jpg

During a stereotactic breast biopsy, your breast will be firmly compressed between two plates. X-rays (mammograms) are used to produce stereo images — images of the same area from different angles — to determine the exact location for the biopsy. A sample of breast tissue in the area of concern is then removed with a needle.
