We performed a prospective analysis of two consecutive biopsy cohorts investigated by the same team to compare the Mammotome system with the ABBI procedure. From April 1997 to August 2003 a series of 413 nonpalpable mammographic lesions in 387 women (median age 56 years, range 30–84 years) were stereotactically biopsied in the University Hospital of Basel, Switzerland. Until October 1999 the ABBI system was applied exclusively, it was subsequently superseded by the Mammotome device in our… CONTINUE READING
