Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

Performed when an abnormality is found in the breast

overview

Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

A procedure that uses mammography to precisely identify and biopsy an abnormality within the breast. Typically done when the radiologist sees a suspicious abnormality on your mammogram that cannot be felt in a physical exam.

For this procedure, you will lay face down on a table with a hole for your breast to go in. The table is positioned to find the radiologist the most optimal setting in order to perform the biopsy.
