Abstract

To evaluate the current state of interventional mammography in the United States, surveys were sent to 1,000 randomly selected active members of the American College of Radiology (group 1) and the entire 1991 membership (n = 73) of the Society of Breast Imaging (group 2). Three hundred seventy-one (37%) group 1 and 49 (67%) group 2 responses were received. Some respondents did not answer all questions. Of group 1 respondents, 331 (93%) performed preoperative needle localization and 272 (73%) used a hook wire; 92 (25%), a J wire; and 55 (15%), a needle-dye technique. For group 2 respondents and these techniques, the results were 45 (94%), 32 (65%), eight (16%), and seven (14%), respectively. One hundred ninety-nine (62%) group 1 and 24 (55%) group 2 physicians administered local anesthetic during needle localization. Fifty-six (16%) group 1 and 25 (56%) group 2 physicians performed fine-needle aspiration cytology, as opposed to 11 (3%) and nine (20%) for core-needle biopsy, respectively. Cyst aspiration was performed by 245 (70%) group 1 and 40 (82%) group 2 respondents, galactography by 126 (36%) of group 1 and 30 (61%) of group 2, and pneumocystography by 57 (16%) of group 1 and 23 (48%) of group 2. For most procedures, informed consent was obtained by a minority of radiologists in both groups.
