Stereotactic needle biopsy of nonpalpable breast masses.
Conn Med. 1994 Feb; 58(2):67-70.CM

Abstract

One hundred two patients with nonpalpable breast masses that presented as mammographic densities with or without calcification were studied consecutively. Using the Stereotix stereotactic device, fine-needle aspirations were obtained with subsequent hook-wire placement followed by surgical excision. Pathology results were reached separately and then compared to the cytologic diagnoses. For patients with adequate cytologic material, sensitivity was 95% and specificity was 100%. There were six suspicious or equivocal diagnoses: three were determined to be benign, while three were malignant. There was inadequate tissue in 13%. Although this technique had limitations, for patients with adequate cytologic and histologic material the accuracy was excellent.
