Stereotactic Biopsy each additional lesion
Stereotactic biopsy for each additional lesion is a diagnostic procedure that is used to obtain tissue samples from multiple suspicious areas of the body, such as breast or brain lesions. This procedure is performed after the initial biopsy has been completed, and when additional lesions have been identified that require further investigation.
The clinical uses of stereotactic biopsy for each additional lesion are similar to those of the initial biopsy procedure, and primarily involve the diagnosis and staging of breast cancer, as well as the diagnosis of brain tumors and other lesions in the central nervous system. In cases where multiple lesions are present, additional biopsies can help provide a more comprehensive assessment of the disease, and guide treatment decisions accordingly.
Stereotactic biopsy for each additional lesion is typically performed using the same imaging guidance and biopsy techniques as the initial biopsy, and is a safe and minimally invasive procedure. Like the initial biopsy, it is typically performed on an outpatient basis and does not require general anesthesia.
Overall, stereotactic biopsy for each additional lesion is an important tool for healthcare professionals in the diagnosis and management of various conditions, particularly in the detection and staging of breast cancer and the diagnosis of brain tumors and other lesions in the central nervous system. By providing additional diagnostic information about suspicious lesions, it can help guide treatment decisions and improve patient outcomes.
