If a mammogram or other breast imaging reveals an abnormality, you may be advised to have a breast biopsy. Radiology Associates of Hartford offers a full range of breast biopsy services in a convenient, outpatient setting.
During a breast biopsy, a small sample of tissue within the breast is removed and sent to a lab to determine if the tissue is concerning. Of the more than one million breast biopsies performed in the United States every year, only 20% will result in confirmed breast cancer.
Today’s biopsies are far less invasive than the “surgical” biopsies performed in years past because imaging technology is now used to guide biopsies. This results in a more precise biopsy sample, less risk, less discomfort and virtually no scarring.
Common Studies Include: Ultrasound Guided Breast Biopsy, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, Breast Cyst Aspiration, Lymph Node Biopsy
