Excerpt

The large number of possible methods of performing breast biopsy can be bewildering to patients and health care providers alike. Which method should one choose? Is a particular method clearly superior, or does the method of choice depend upon individual patient characteristics? We have performed a systematic review intended to evaluate the accuracy of different methods of performing breast biopsy and to explore what factor(s) may impact the accuracy and possible harms of different methods of performing breast biopsy.
