The Diagnostic Primer provides excellent photographic step-by-step guidance to the diagnostic procedure. It has been produced to describe the diagnostic intervention in the simplest manner possible without over-simplifying. The core of the Diagnostic Primer is the section on nodal points, where the key procedural steps are described in detail. This diagnostic guidebook provides essential reference material to physicians wishing to update their knowledge in this specific area.


The Diagnostic Primer Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy with Mammotome® refers especially to physicians who wish to familiarize themselves with Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsies. Minimally invasive breast biopsies using image-guided vacuum-assisted devices are now in routine use for both diagnostic and therapeutic excision of breast lesions. These techniques have the advantage of offering sufficient tissue material for an accurate diagnosis avoiding open procedures. The Diagnostic Primer gives a detailed overview of patients’ preparation, key procedural steps and the pitfalls of Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsies using ultrasound, stereotactic and MRI-guided procedures. Furthermore the appendices explain accurate documentation of the procedure and the pathological workup of the tissue specimens. This Diagnostic Primer is an excellent teaching tool advocating a standardized technique not only for those who begin but also for the experienced physician who wants to apply the Mammotome® Breast Biopsy System.
