- Is surgical excision of core biopsy proven benign papillomas necessary? (Durham, NC) - close imaging FU is all they do in their practice.
- Underestimation of papillary lesions by core: correlation with surgical excision ( Scottsville, NY) - 6% underestimate by core. 91% of lesions were identified as atypical
- Follow-up rather than excision for papillary lesions with VAB (Philadelphia, PA) - 11g VAB can be safely followed rather than having surgical excision
- How many calcs for diagnosis in VAB for non-mass calcifications? (Korea) - 6 or more cores should be obtained
- Impact of 10g Vacora and 9G Suros ATEC biopsy for MRI guided biopsy (Bonn, Germany) - Lesions sampled at VAB reduced the chances of localisation biopsy
- 8G vs 11G needle diagnostic accuracy for stereo cores (Boston, MA) - improvement of over 90% by using 8G for calcs
- False -ve rate for 14G core biopsy (Korea) - accurate method for diagnosing cancer
- Clip displacement following VAB, comparison of conventional and gel markers(Vienna, Austria) - SenoRX clips cw Micromark clips. Displacement of up to 20mm with conventional clips. Conventional clips should no longer be used.
- Diagnostic accuracy of 14G core biopsy for Phyllodes tumours (Korea) - tendency to UNDERSAMPLE.
