Stereotactic Breast Biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure used to rule out or diagnose breast cancer following a suspicious finding from a physical exam, mammogram or ultrasound. The procedure uses ultrasound guided needle aspiration to remove a small sample of suspicious breast tissue. The procedure is most often done on an outpatient basis by a radiologist or general surgeon. The procedure take less than one hour and does not require suturing.
