Stereotactic breast biopsy uses an X-ray to precisely position a needle to retrieve samples of suspicious breast tissue discovered on a mammogram. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis in the women's imaging area on the Edward Hospital campus.
Breast Biopsy Results Clinic
We offer a Breast Biopsy Results Clinic for patients undergoing an image-guided breast biopsy. At the time of the biopsy, the patient is given a follow up appointment with the Results Clinic where, if they results are positive, they will return for a meeting with the radiologist and the breast nurse navigator within 48-72 hours of their bopsy to receive more detailed information and learn next steps.
