Ultrasound Guided Core Needle Breast Biopsy

The use of core needle biopsy with real-time ultrasound guidance assures accurate sampling of breast masses. This significantly cuts the waiting to establish final diagnosis. This modality is cheaper, faster and less painful because only a needle is used. The patient experiences less anxiety due to the decreased the wait to definitive treatment compared to traditional open excision or incision biopsy of  the breast.
