Why might I need an image-guided breast biopsy?

Your healthcare provider may use an image-guided breast biopsy using ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or mammography if you have:

  • A concerning solid mass
  • A concern in how your breast tissue is structured
  • An abnormal breast tissue change

By performing an image-guided breast biopsy, your provider can locate the concerning tissue and remove a small sample for further testing.
