Minimally Invasive Biopsy Methods - Diagnostics or Therapy? Personal Opinion and Review of the Literature

, : Minimally Invasive Biopsy Methods - Diagnostics or Therapy? Personal Opinion and Review of the Literature. Breast Care 6(2): 94-97

SUMMARY: This article provides an overview of different minimally invasive biopsy (MIB) methods for preoperative assessment of suspicious and indeterminate breast lesions. Accuracy depends on the choice of method and on lesion characteristics. An additional aspect deals with the question whether or not MIB is a suitable therapeutic approach in selected lesions.
