INTRODUCTION Core needle biopsy (CNB) has progressively replaced fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the diagnosis of breast lesions. Less information is available on how these tests perform for biopsy of ultrasound (US) visible breast lesions. This study examines the outcomes of CNB and FNAC in a large series ascertained with surgical histology or clinical-imaging follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective five-year audit of 3233 consecutive US-guided needle samplings of solid… CONTINUE READING
