Breast Biopsy

In ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, ultrasound imaging is used to help guide the radiologist to the site of the abnormal growth. It is a non-invasive, accurate way to obtain the tissue sample required for diagnosis.

An ultrasound-guided breast biopsy can be performed when a breast ultrasound shows an abnormality such as:

  • a suspicious solid mass
  • a distortion in the structure of the breast tissue
  • an area of abnormal tissue change

There are times when your doctor may decide that ultrasound guidance for biopsy is appropriate even for a mass that can be felt.
