Breast biopsies

Have you been referred for a breast biopsy? Has your mammogram showed a suspicious lesion? Visit… to learn more about how we do image guided breast biopsies.

If your mammogram, breast ultrasound or breast MRI found a suspicious lesion you may be advised to have a biopsy done. This means obtaining a sample of the suspicious tissue and having it analysed by a specialist pathologist under a microscope.An image guided biopsy is usually the least invasive way of obtaining tissue, but in some cases an open surgical biopsy in theatre may also be done. When we perform a biopsy it is will be under ultrasound or stereotactic mammogram guidance.
