abstract

  • Stereotactic biopsy with a low-field iMRI is an accurate way to obtain specimens with a high diagnostic yield. This accuracy, combined with the acceptable additional procedural time, may obviate the need for frozen section. The ability to correct biopsy cannula placement during surgery eliminates the chance of misdiagnosis because of faulty targeting, as well as the risks associated with inconclusive frozen sections and "blind" replacement of the cannula.
