For this procedure, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to guide the radiologist’s instrument to the site of abnormal growth. Once suspicious area is identified, an instrument moves the biopsy needle in position and removes the tissue. Because this type of biopsy uses a needle, damage to nearby tissue is minimal.
An MRI-guided breast biopsy is used when an MRI scan indicates an unusual mass, growth, distorted area or an area with abnormal tissue.
Contact your doctor if you have bleeding, drainage, redness, swelling or warmth in the breast after going home.
