About Your Visit
What to expect
To perform your breast biopsy, our radiologist uses equipment such as stereotactic (X-ray) mammography, ultrasound or MRI to help guide in taking the small tissue sample.
The biopsy will take one to two hours. You may resume light activity 30 minutes after your biopsy. Please do not lift or push more than 10 pounds for 24 hours. You may start normal activity in 48 hours.
You may shower, but please do not bathe or swim for five days.
The technologists who assist your radiologist will provide you with any other instructions on caring for your biopsy site after your procedure.
