Breast Biopsy

A breast biopsy is the best way to diagnose an abnormality in breast tissue. An ultrasound guided biopsy involves a radiologist taking samples of abnormal breast tissue through a needle while being guided by ultrasound imaging.

Ultrasound also known as sonography, uses high frequency sound waves to outline a part of the body. The sound waves are transmitted through the breast and picked up and translated by a computer into an image displayed on a monitor. You are not exposed to radiation during this test. There are several different biopsy devices that may be used to remove samples of abnormal breast tissue, which is then tested to determine if it is cancerous.
