Ultrasound-Guided Breast Biopsy Tissue Sampling: Technique and Breast Ultrasound Characteristics of Benign and Malignant Lesions
Excisional breast biopsy was the gold standard for diagnosis for nearly 100 years. The emergence of minimally invasive image-guided breast surgery has given surgeons familiar with this new technology an accurate, reproducible, and cost-effective method of diagnosis in the office setting. This chapter reviews the ultrasound-guided biopsy methods and techniques that are now available to the surgeon.
