Denim and Diamond Fund Designation

A stereotactic core biopsy is less invasive

Proceeds from this year’s Denim & Diamonds are designated to purchasing a new, state-of-the-art imaging tool to perform a stereotactic core biopsy.

We use stereotactic mammography to pinpoint the exact location of a breast mass by using computer and digital X-rays taken from two different angles. Using these computer coordinates, the surgeon inserts the needle through the skin, advances it into the lesion, and removes tissue samples.

Stereotactic core biopsy was developed as an alternative to surgical biopsy. It is a less invasive way to obtain the tissue samples needed for diagnosis. This procedure requires less recovery time than does a surgical biopsy, and there is no significant scarring to the breast.
