Murawa P, Fedorowicz T, Kobylarek R, Nowakowski W, Wasiewicz J.


The purpose of work is to assess stereotactic mammotome biopsy technology in diagnostics of nonpalpable breast lesions. In the period from April to December 2000 mammotome biopsy procedure was performed on395 female patients at the I Oncological Surgery department the Greatpoland CancerCenter in Poznań .In all patients, diagnosed lesions were non-palpable and categorisedas BI-RADS III, IV, V. Patients were aged between 16 and 78 (average 52.6 years). They divided into three groups depending on radiological characteristics of the examined lesions - separate analyses were carried out for patients with microcalcifications suspicious tumores and radial scar. Diagnostic examination was performed on an ambulatory basis. Procedurewas carried out on a Fischer mammotome table using the Mammotome Biopsy System. The Cancers were detected in 17 % cases .All patients with diagnosed cancer underwent further surgical procedure. In 83 % patients in whom begin lesions were found mammography screening was recommended at 6 month intervals. The Stereotactic Mammotome Breast Biopsy System is a sensitive, minimally invasive diagnostic technology characterised by: very high diagnostic precision, minimal traumatisation of surrounding tissues, excellent cosmetic effect ,economical procedure.
