OBJECTIVE To evaluate the accuracy of touch imprint (TI) cytology of image-directed core needle biopsy (CNB) specimens of nonpalpable breast lesions. STUDY DESIGN Fifty-two consecutive CNBs from 44 patients were performed under mammographic or ultrasound guidance. Air- dried TIs of CNBs were stained with Diff-Quik. TI cellularity was considered adequate if six or more ductal cell groups were identified. CNBs and TIs were interpreted in a blinded fashion. RESULTS TI cellularity was adequate… CONTINUE READING
