Minimally Invasive Biopsy Procedures: Bryn Mawr
Hospital physicians have pioneered several minimally invasive
techniques to sample questionable areas without requiring major
surgical procedures. The Center offers both stereotactic and

mammogram and ultrasound results are inconclusive. MRI-guided
needle localizations and MRI-guided biopsies can be performed.
Surgical Consultation: If a woman's breast
imaging results require further evaluation, our board-certified
breast surgeons are available for consultation within 24 to 48
hours. We also offer consultation with a plastic and
