Pittsburgh Researchers Develop First 3-D Guided Breast Biopsy in U.S.

Posted By on September 16th, 2013 at 8:56 am | 89 comments.

3-D Biopsy PicThis Summer,  the first 3-D guided breast biopsy was performed at the Magee-Women’s Hospital of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.   In conjunction with the 3-D biopsy, Magee radiologists also helped to develop  3-D guided mammography, which creates a complete reconstruction of the breast.  Radiologists can then use the reconstruction to identify abnormalities, which can be difficult to detect with traditional screening methods.  Why is this so important?

3-D guided breast biopsies are revolutionary because they allow for faster lesion targeting, reduced patient procedure time and reduced radiation exposure.  The 3-D biopsies are particularly important for women with breast lesions that are difficult to reach and for women with arthritis or other physical limitations, all of which make traditional biopsies more challenging.

Dr. Sumkin, D.O., chief of radiology at Magee, said, “The ability for us to provide 3-D guided biopsy to our patients represents an exciting new example of our leadership in this area. Magee radiologists continue to play a pivotal role in the development and advancement of this technology.”

Magee-Women’s Hospital of UPMC researchers expect to see more women getting routine screening for breast cancer due to their latest technological advancements.
