Detection and Removal of Ceramic Clip Markers from Breast Tissue by Ultrasound-Guided, Vacuum-Assisted Minimally Invasive Biopsy in a Turkey Breast Model.

Abstract

This article explores the ability of sonographically guided, vacuum-assisted minimally invasive biopsy (VAB) to detect and remove ceramic clip markers from breast tissue. This is a feasibility pre-study for a clinical study using vacuum-assisted biopsy to predict pathologic complete response of breast cancer. Twenty-six ceramic clip markers were placed in… (More)
