When is MRI guided breast biopsy done?

MRI guided breast biopsy is often used to diagnose breast cancer in women with dense breasts. Dense breasts are difficult to image with mammography, so MRI can be used to better visualize suspicious areas. MRI guided breast biopsy can also be used to biopsy areas that are difficult to reach with other types of biopsy, such as areas behind the nipple.

How is MRI guided breast biopsy done?

The patient will lie on a table in the MRI scanner. The breast will be positioned in the opening of the scanner and held in place with a compression device. The radiologist will use the MRI images to guide the insertion of a needle into the suspicious area. The tissue sample will then be removed.

What are the risks of MRI guided breast biopsy?

The risks of MRI guided breast biopsy are generally low. Some possible risks include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Temporary numbness

Recovery from MRI guided breast biopsy

The recovery time for MRI guided breast biopsy is usually short. The patient may experience some pain, bruising, or tenderness at the biopsy site for a few days. They can resume their normal activities, such as driving and working, as soon as they feel comfortable.

Results of MRI guided breast biopsy

The results of MRI guided breast biopsy will usually be available within a few days. The doctor will discuss the results with the patient and explain what they mean.

Conclusion

MRI guided breast biopsy is a safe and effective procedure that can be used to diagnose breast cancer in women with dense breasts. It is a minimally invasive procedure with low risks and a short recovery time.
