Papillary Lesions:Evaulated

ABSTRACT: Papillary Lesions of the Breast: Evaluation with Stereotactic Directional Vacuum-assisted Biopsy

[12/21/2001; Radiology]

PURPOSE: To evaluate the use of stereotactic directional vacuum-assisted biopsy (SDVAB) in diagnosing and managing papillary lesions of the breast.

CONCLUSION: Benign and malignant papillary lesions of the breast can be reliably diagnosed at SDVAB when the SDVAB results correlate with the imaging findings. However, the extent of malignant papillary disease may be underestimated at SDVAB; in our study, invasive carcinoma was later discovered in 25% of patients with this diagnosis.
