Percutaneous Biopsies: Clinical and Radiological Aspects
The applicability of percutaneous biopsies is to define the cytological or histological structure of palpable or impalpable lesions, enabling a non-surgical diagnosis of mammary lesions. The histological result plays a major role in surgical planning, and the complementary immunohistochemical study offers a prominent definition of prognostic factors and adjuvant treatment and afterward the classification of the biological tumor profile.
