Complete excision of the MRI target lesion at MRI-guided vacuum-assisted biopsy of breast cancer
Carcinoma, Ductal, Breast

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.
