Services Stereotactic Biopsy
A stereotactic biopsy is ordered for further evaluation of your breast tissue to look at it under a microscope for abnormalities. Stereotactic technology involves finding the precise location of the abnormal area by using conventional mammography from three angles and a special biopsy needle.
Women who undergo stereotactic biopsy can take comfort in knowing that the procedure is safe, simple, and only mildly uncomfortable. Unlike the more invasive surgical procedure, there is no external scarring, no internal scar to interfere with future mammograms, no exposure to general procedure, and no prolonged recovery period.
