The Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center was the first
facility in the state—and among the first 12 in the nation—to
earn ACR accreditation for ultrasound-guided fine needle biopsy.
An advanced procedure that is used in place of surgery to determine
if a tumor is cancerous, ultrasoundguided fine needle biopsy involves
removing cells from a solid mass for diagnosis. In most cases, results
from this type of biopsy are read and provided to the patient within
30 minutes of the procedure.
