stereotactic breast cores

From:"Instrumedics, Inc." <>

Bob Richmond, the Samurai Pathologist, discussed diagnostic breast core

A hospital in West Palm Beach Florida used "stereotactic" breast cores for a
large number of cases. They were able to prepare high quality frozen
sections and make an accurate diagnosis.  They used the CryoJane Tape-
Transfer system!

An H&E stained section of a breast core biopsy prepared with the CryoJane
process used to make a cancer diagnosis, can be seen on the "gallery" on our
web site.

Using stereotactic breast core biopsies seems to be a very good alternative
to the open breast biopsy method.

The woman learns the results of the biopsy before she has her clothes back
on, with very little insult to her breast.
