Virtually any nonpalpable breast lesion that is clearly demonstrated on sonograms can be sampled with a needle under ultrasound guidance. Advantages of ultrasound-guided FNA include its pinpoint accuracy, the excellent tolerance by patients, and the ability to aspirate or inject fluid or air. Advantages of ultrasound-guided CNB include a near… CONTINUE READING
