We aimed to analyze the PPV of the subcategories and of the mammographic and ultrasonographic descriptors assigned to each. MATERIAL AND METHODS We analyzed 880(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the utility and economic costs of the 11-G vacuum-assisted biopsy probe under ultrasound (US) guidance as an alternative to surgical excision in patients with probably benign lesions. MATERIAL AND METHODS US-guided 11-G vacuum-assisted biopsy was performed in 102 probably benign breast lesions in 97 women who refused radiological(More)
BACKGROUND Vacuum-assisted devices are becoming a useful tool in the diagnosis and treatment of breast pathology. Recent publications show good results in percutaneous removal of benign lesions. PURPOSE To discuss our experience in percutaneous excision of ductal lesions with a vacuum-assisted, ultrasound-guided directional system. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
