The majority of mri-guided breast biopsies are currently performed in closed mri systems with a specially modified exam table. your radiologist (doctor who specializes in image-guided procedures) has recommended that you have an mri-guided breast biopsy. A breast biopsy is done to take samples of tissue from your breast to examine it for cancer. when your cad fails, being able to manually target lesions for mri guided breast biopsies is crucial. Rationale and objective the objective of this study was to evaluate breast lesion outcomes in patients after canceled mri-guided breast biopsy due to lesion nonvisualization. Materials and methods electronic medical records (january 2007-december 2014) were searched for patients with canceled magnetic resonance imaging (mri)-guided breast biopsies due to lesion nonvisualization. Mri-guided breast biopsy is usually a preferred alternative to surgical biopsy. It is used when ultrasound or mammogram (stereotactic) guided biopsy is not appropriate because the area of concern is not well seen by mammography or ultrasound. When a suspicious finding is seen on a breast magnetic resonance imaging (mri) examination and other imaging and clinical examinations are negative, the only way to perform a biopsy of the lesion is by using mri guidance. All facilities that perform breast mri should have the ability to perform mri-guided biopsy. Image-guided needle biopsy is not designed to remove the entire lesion. In mri-guided breast biopsy, magnetic resonance imaging is used to help guide the radiologists instruments to the site of the abnormal growth. In the contralateral breast of women with proven breast cancer, the cancer rate was 30 and was lower than that obtained by lee et al. , who detected seven cancers (47) among 15 contralateral lesions by mri-guided or mammography-guided localization in their study of 182 breast cancer patients.
