Abstract

Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a promising technique for the evaluation of nonpalpable breast abnormalities. Mammographically detected lesions can be localized for FNAB by use of fenestrated coordinate-grid compression paddles or stereotactic devices. Despite the advantages of low cost and minimal discomfort for the patient, there are a number of limitations with the current technology. Further research is necessary to determine the roles of percutaneous needle biopsy techniques in the diagnosis of nonpalpable breast lesions.
