abstract

  • Complete excision of the MRI target occurred in 30% of breast cancers diagnosed at MRI-guided vacuum-assisted biopsy. Among cancers in which the MRI target was percutaneously excised, surgery yielded residual cancer in 64%. Complete removal of the MRI target does not ensure complete histologic excision of the cancer.
