Stereotactic X-Ray Guided Percutaneous Core Biopsy Lesions that are identified by mammography can be biopsied efficiently by various non surgical techniques utilizing stereotactic x-ray guidance. This procedure is very accurate and is more precise than open surgical biopsy. Stereotactic x-ray guidance has been provided to our patients since 1994 and is performed in our office using the latest state-of-the-art, vacuum-assisted core biopsy methods. We have been very successful using this technique and our patients who have undergone this procedure have expressed a high degree of satisfaction. The procedure avoids surgery and does not require the services, inconveniences, and expense of the hospital venue. Stereotactic x-ray guidance is performed with a minimal amount of local anesthetic and generally does not cause discomfort. With this procedure, patients do not require post-procedure care or medication and may immediately return to performing daily activities.
