Providing efficiency and clinical confidence throughout the procedure and onto pathology
Stereotactic imaging has been a mainstay of the breast cancer care paradigm for some time. Recent advances in technology are enabling more sophisticated 2D and 3D images to be collected from patients in prone and upright positions and subsequently analyzed. Always important for calcified abnormalities in particular, Stereotactic biopsy continues to be an important technique in many practices.
A very beneficial aspect of Stereotactic procedures is the ability to collect biopsy samples and immediately analyze them. A successful biopsy procedure can be confirmed at the patient’s side. This ability to integrate sample collection and analysis helps contribute to the utility and effectiveness of Stereotactic biopsies.
