MRI-Assisted Breast Biopsy

Providence Tarzana performs MRI-assisted breast biopsy procedures on women with abnormal breast MRI findings, allowing physicians to biopsy the lesion in the MRI suite.

MRI-assisted breast biopsies allow the patient a much safer approach than open biopsy. The procedure takes less than an hour and the recovery time is rapid. Other benefits include:

  • Significantly less scaring
  • Faster healing
  • MRI breast biopsies are extremely accurate
  • Patients are less likely to need an open biopsy due to inclusive biopsy findings
  • Less pain and bleeding
  • Fewer post surgical complications
  • Increased patient satisfaction
