Technical Note: MRI-guided breast biopsy - our preliminary experience.

Taneja S, Jena A, Kumar K, Mehta A - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2010)

Bottom Line: The diagnostic potential of breast MRI can be fully utilized only when it is possible to biopsy lesions detected on MRI, especially when they are not visible on mammography or USG.We would like to describe our experience with MRI-guided wire localization and biopsy.

Figure 0001: Biopsy coil device. Photographs show a four-channel breast biopsy coil with positioning device (a), a grid-positioning device (b) and a pillar-and-post positioning device (c)

Mentions: The MRI-guided breast biopsies were performed on a 1.5-T scanner (AVANTO, SIEMENS, Erlangan, Germany) with a dedicated 4-channel breast biopsy coil and positioning device (320PA, NORAS, Germany) which can either be a grid or pillar and post positioning device [Figures 1a–c]. The positioning device has medial and lateral compression plates for moderate compression, a needle guide for placing the fiducial marker (filled with 1:100 solution of gadolinium and saline) and a needle sleeve. Coordinate calculation was done using the scanner software (Syngo, SIEMENS, Germany).Figure 1 (a-c)
