In what circumstances would a stereotactic biopsy be difficult to perform

In what circumstances would a stereotactic biopsy be difficult to perform?

  • • Subareolar lesion location. Lesions in the subareolar region are difficult to access due to the location and thickness of the tissue.
  • • Thin breast tissue. Compression thickness of less than 2.5 to 3.0 cm may make biopsy sampling difficult depending on the type of needle utilized.
  • • Very posterior lesion location. It is difficult to access and target lesions that are very posterior in the breast.
  • • Lesions that are difficult to see. The calcifications or lesions should be easily visible for targeting.
