Stereotactic and vacuum assisted biopsy

A 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 is equipped with affirm tomo biopsy unit that is capable of quickly transitioning from screening to 2D or 3D™ for interventional procedures using any Hologic 3D Mammography ™ system. With the Affirm® 3D™ upright tomo biopsy unit, even the lesions that are visible only with tomosynthesis imaging are also clearly localised and biopsied accurately. 

Our centre is equipped with the ATEC Vacuum-assisted breast biopsy technology. A biopsy procedure with ATEC involves-

  • A one-time needle insertion under local anesthesia
  • No stitches
  • No hospitalization
  • No general anesthesia

Ensures good samples for a definitive diagnosis and allows the woman to get back to her normal activities immediately.
