Core Needle Biopsy

Core needle biopsy

Core biopsies are performed by using a spring-loaded needle to obtain a small core of tissue from a breast lesion. This test is performed during your ultrasound examination by the specialist breast radiologist.

The cores of tissue are sent to the lab for analysis and a pathology report will be sent on to your referring doctor within approximately 48 hours.
