Stereotactic Breast Biopsy Procedure

About Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

Stereotactic breast biopsy uses computer imaging to allow for the precise removal of a small area of breast tissue. Your surgeon performs the biopsy with the assistance of a radiologist.

Advantages of stereotactic breast biopsy over surgical biopsy:

  • It is performed under local anesthesia, while you are awake.
  • It is faster.
  • It is less costly.
  • It is less complicated.
  • A smaller amount of breast tissue is removed.
  • You can return to normal activities more quickly.

We offer several types of stereotactic breast biopsies:

  • ABBI (Advanced Breast Biopsy Instrument)
  • MIBB (Minimal Invasive Breast Biopsy)
  • Core Needle Biopsy

Your doctor will determine whether or not you are a candidate for any of these biopsies.
