Exams We Offer: Image-Guided Breast Biopsy

Routine self-exams and mammograms are important to keep your breasts healthy. If an abnormality is found, your doctor might order a biopsy to see a more detailed view of the breast tissue. An image-guided breast biopsy removes a small sample of breast tissue or cells for examination under a microscope to see if cancer or other abnormalities are present.

The type of imaging used for your biopsy will depend on the location of the abnormality and how it is best seen. Your doctor may use a mammogramultrasound or MRI for the procedure.
