Stereotactic Breast Biopsy (Brevera Digital System)


There is a dedicated Women’s Imaging Center section within the building. This area features a private dressing, waiting area, and comfortable seating with reading material, and wide-screen televisions. The imaging center accepts mammography self-referrals so there is no need for a doctor referral.

Stereotactic breast biopsy uses mammography – a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose x-rays — to help locate a breast abnormality and remove a tissue sample for examination under a microscope. It's less invasive than surgical biopsy, leaves little to no scarring and can be an excellent way to evaluate calcium deposits or tissue that may not visible on ultrasound.

Our Brevera® breast biopsy system imaging technology is the world’s first and only solution to combine vacuum-assisted tissue acquisition, real-time imaging, verification and advanced post-biopsy handling – all in one, integrated system. There’s no moving to another room for imaging. No waiting for sample verification, instead, we have real-time information needed to increase accuracy, enhance workflow, and deliver an improved patient experience.
