Ultrasound-Guided Breast Biopsy
A breast biopsy is the process of removing a small tissue sample from the breast for further evaluation in a laboratory. The doctors at Rose Imaging Specialists perform different types of breast biopsies, depending on the type and nature of the mass found within the breast.
In an ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, ultrasound imaging is used by the radiologist to guide the biopsy devise to the site of the abnormality.
