Intuitive operation and smart workflows are key to fast and highly accurate examinations in mammography. Our breast biopsy solutions enable increased diagnostic accuracy while guiding the operator intuitively through the entire procedure. Save time and increase efficiency with intuitive workflows. Our stereotactic biopsy solution minimizes workflow steps and guides you through the procedure for a fast and accurate examination, not only because of the fully motorized needle movement in the X,Y and Z axes, but also because of the vertical and lateral needle access.
Breast Cancer Topic: what to expect at/after stereotactic biopsy?
A stereotactic breast biopsy is a procedure that uses mammography to precisely identify and biopsy an abnormality within the breast. This procedure will help determine whether you have breast cancer or any other abnormalities in your breast to be concerned about. A mammography is a special form of X-ray used on the breasts. Stereotactic breast biopsies use mammographic X-rays to locate and target the area of concern and to help guide the biopsy needle to a precise location. This technique helps ensure that the area that is biopsied is the exact area where the abnormality was seen on the mammogram.
Stereotactic and ultrasound breast biopsy are used to obtain pathologic information from mammographic areas of suspicion. When a mass, microcalcifications, or area of abnormal tissue change exist; stereotactic and ultrasound breast biopsy offers a minimally invasive alternative to open surgical biopsy, often before a mass develops. This course offers the attendee the opportunity to learn the basics, as well as the tricks of the trade, from experienced instructors with multi-vendor competence.
During a stereotactic breast biopsy, your breast will be firmly compressed between two plates. X-rays mammograms are used to produce stereo images — images of the same area from different angles — to determine the exact location for the biopsy. A sample of breast tissue in the area of concern is then removed with a needle.
