Outcomes of small renal mass needle core biopsy
, nondiagnostic percutaneous biopsy, and the role of repeat biopsy.
Mammograms failed to identify the lesion and a clinical core biopsy
The results of an FNA or core biopsy
, if these have been needed, generally take a few days to come through," said Dr Qadir.
The core biopsy
demonstrated features of granulomatous mastitis.
The problem is that core biopsy
only samples a small area of lesion--and micro- or frank invasion might be missed.
Ultrasound is not diagnostic and core biopsy
is preferred to FNAC for diagnosis.
The referring doctor would (and should) seek FNAC and/or core biopsy
to determine the nature of the lump even if the mammogram was negative.
While needle biopsy does not appear to have efficacy, core biopsy
where feasible may provide a diagnosis.

The money has been used to buy a digital Faxitron machine, which takes X-rays of core biopsy

Following an ultrasound and a core biopsy
, she was finally given the news she dreaded.
The study evaluated a total of 35 patients undergoing ultrasound-guided biopsies using Smart Fusion between February 2013 and May 2014, including 33 liver lesion biopsies, one renal core biopsy
and one renal lesion biopsy.
Recent reports suggest that using larger bore needles (11 gauge or larger) for core biopsy
may improve the accuracy of the diagnosis and may potentially obviate the need for surgical excision.
