Breast Biopsy with Ultrasound Image Guidance Fine needle aspiration FNAcore needle biopsyand vacuum-assisted biopsy may be performed using ultrasound or stereotactic image guidance if a breast lesion is easily visualized with this method. Ultrasound is an excellent method of imaging the breasts; ultrasound guidance allows biopsy of the breast from almost any orientation. During an ultrasound-guided biopsy, small samples of tissue are removed from the breast using a hollow core needle or vacuum-assisted biopsy device that is precisely guided to the correct location using continuous ultrasound imaging. During the procedure, the patient will lie face up on the standard ultrasound table while being modestly draped, exposing only the area of the breast undergoing biopsy.

Breast Biopsy (Performed in hospital)
Articles on the health-care industry are a fertile source of large numbers and, sometimes, large errors. However, the cost set off my number-sense alarm. My first mental step was to convert that cost, which is far beyond human experience at least, far beyond mineinto one that I could judge.
