To compare malignancy underestimation rates in the case of percutaneous diagnosis of borderline breast lesions(B3) at 14-g core-needle-biopsy (CNB) and at 11-g vacuum-assisted-biopsy (VAB). The histological results of 4764 image-guided breast biopsies were retrospectively reviewed. 300 B3, 151 benign papillomas, 88 radial sclerosing lesions, 46 lobular neoplasia, 15 atypical ductal hyperplasia diagnosed at ultrasound-guided 14-g CNB (76%) or stereotactically-guided 11-g VAB (24%) were… CONTINUE READING
