Case Study: Mammotome<sup>®</sup> 8-Gauge – Diagnosis of Faint Calcification w Architectural Distortion
Yale Study – Adequate Core Biopsy Samples from Stereotactic Biopsies Needed for Today’s Breast Pathology
Utility of Adequate Core Biopsy Samples from Ultrasound Biopsies Needed for Today’s Breast Pathology
Minimal invasive complete excision of benign breast tumors using a three-dimensional ultrasound-guided Mammotome<sup>®</sup> vacuum device
A comprehensive evaluation of 8-gauge vacuum-assisted Mammotome<sup>®</sup> system for ultrasound-guided diagnostic biopsy and selective excision of breast lesions
Large volume ‘‘mammotome’’ biopsy may reduce the need for diagnostic surgery in papillary lesions of the breast
There is a paradigm shift in breast biopsy philosophy. In the past radiologists and clinicians used to collect as little tissue as possible for pathologists to render a diagnosis on conventional histologic H&E sections.
“We have had the opportunity to work with the Mammotome elite since its release in 2012 and I currently use it for all my ultrasound-guided procedures.”
The methods of diagnosing breast disease have continuously changed over the last few decades. During this time, standard diagnostic technique has evolved from open surgical biopsy to minimally invasive breast biopsy [MIBB] which provides a confident diagnosis while minimizing procedure time, cost and morbidity.
