Abstract

We report the surgical pathology experience with large caliber stereotactic biopsies for non-palpable breast lesions in 217 patients. The aim is to compare the demographics to another somewhat similar center (#2), and to published results with the much smaller stereotactic needle biopsies, including our own historical controls. The large caliber tissue specimens yielded proportionally fewer nonspecific diagnoses, with remaining areas of difficulty. An evolving diagnostic strategy is outlined.
