When a specific area of breast tissue needs further examination, a breast biopsy may be conducted to examine breast tissue and confirm the presence of any abnormalities. A breast biopsy is safe and minimally invasive.
A breast biopsy is performed by one of our board-certified, subspecialized radiologists and technologists who have been trained to perform this study in a comfortable and quick manner. During the biopsy, a small amount of breast tissue is removed from a specific area of the breast. The removed tissue is sent to a medical lab for further studies by a pathologist and confirms a diagnosis.
At South Jersey Radiology, our radiologists employ various techniques for conducting breast biopsies, including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, stereotactic breast biopsy, and MR-guided breast biopsy that use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
