Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 18, 2014
A biopsy is a minimally-invasive procedure that removes a sample of abnormal tissue that has been previously detected for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. This type of procedure is most commonly used to diagnose, and sometimes treat, lumps found in the breast tissue. The Center for Diagnostic Imaging of Miami announces a new biopsy procedure that does not require surgery.
Known as an ultrasound biopsy or a stereotactic biopsy, it may be performed after abnormalities have been detected in the breast as a result of a breast self-exam, mammogram or other imaging procedure. There are several different biopsy procedures available to ensure the most precise removal and analysis for an individual’s condition. Many of these procedures are performed with ultrasound or MRI guidance to ensure precise needle placement while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
A special automated needle is used for an image-guided biopsy. A specialty trained radiologist uses ultrasound, MRI, or mammography to view the breast tissue as he carefully guides the needle into the abnormal area. The needle then removes a small amount of tissue from the abnormality.
These non-surgical biopsies are done as an outpatient procedure and only require local anesthesia. The specific type of breast biopsy to be received depends on the location of the abnormality and the initial consultation with the radiologist.
