    Breast Cancer Interventional Procedures (Update)
    Original article by: Karen S. Bubb, BSRT, ARRT(R), RVT, RDMS; Updated by: Steven Marks

    Course Description
    As technological advancements in breast imaging continue to emerge, the ability to detect small early stage breast cancers improves apace. The importance of making an accurate tissue diagnosis of these early breast cancers is essential for good outcomes. Minimally invasive diagnostic biopsy procedures, such as fine-needle aspirations, core-needle biopsies, and vacuum-assisted biopsies, have replaced many of the older surgical/excisional biopsy methods. The trend toward breast-conservation therapy and breast preservation has elevated the importance of lumpectomy procedures, as well as nonsurgical radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation. This article provides a brief description of the most common and emerging breast-imaging modalities, diagnostic biopsy techniques, and therapeutic procedures.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading this article, the participant should be able to:

    • REVIEW the most common breast-imaging modalities.
    • DISTINGUISH the most common breast-biopsy procedures, including their relative advantages and disadvantages.
    • COMPARE and CONTRAST the most important breast-therapeutic procedures, identifying the appropriate setting for each modality.

     Categories: Mammography, Ultrasound/Sonography, MRI.
