Ultrasound Guided Biopsy
Also known as ultrasound biopsy or ultrasound-guided injection, ultrasound-guided breast biopsy is an accurate way to take samples of tissue from within the breast that are visible on ultrasound but may not be able to be felt by you or your doctor.
The procedure prevents the need to surgically remove tissue and eliminates the radiation exposure that comes from using x-rays to locate the area of concern.
