Minimally Invasive Breast Procedures
Wydawnictwo: Springer Verlag
This book examines in detail the diverse minimally invasive diagnostic techniques that may be employed when imaging yields suspicious findings. These include vacuum-assisted minimally invasive breast biopsy systems (ATEC, EnCor, Intact, Mammotome and Vacora), stereotactic systems, MRI-guided procedures, and ductoscopy. Further chapters are devoted to the pathology of the breast tissue obtained using these procedures, their limitations, the implications of recent advances in breast imaging, and the results of cost-benefit analyses. The closing chapter provides a systematic review and meta-analysis of recent data.
