Tissue diagnosis is the final answer in the diagnosis of breast diseases. It is obtained using several techniques.
Ultrasound guided core needle biopsy
Ultrasound guided core biopsy is performed under local anaesthesia. A small piece of tissue is removed and sent for testing to the lab and results will be available in a few days.
Stereotactic core needle biopsy and wire localisation
Stereotactic guided biopsy is done when the area that needs to be biopsied, is not felt by hand or seen on ultrasound. Chennai breast centre was the first in the country to introduce prone table biopsy system to do stereotactic biopsy of the breast.
Our centre is equipped with the ATEC Vacuum assisted breast biopsy technology.
Stereotactic wire localization is procedure that is done to localize a very small cancer that is not felt by hand or seen on Ultrasound. This procedure lets the surgeon know where exactly the lesion is present in the breast. The surgeon uses the wire as a guide and removes the lesion, the specimen is x-rayed once again to confirm the removal of the cancer.
