OBJECTIVE Displaced epithelial fragments at percutaneous biopsy of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) may mimic stromal invasion. This study was undertaken to determine the frequency of epithelial displacement in DCIS lesions of patients who underwent stereotactic 11-gauge directional vacuum-assisted breast biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 28 consecutive DCIS lesions in patients who underwent stereotactic 11-gauge directional vacuum-assisted breast biopsy followed by… CONTINUE READING
