Depending on the results of a breast exam or a mammogram, your physician might request that you have a breast biopsy to determine abnormalities.
The imaging team at Mat-Su Regional Medical Center has years of imaging and breast care experience and understands not only the technical aspects of their job, but also the emotional components. When we greet you we'll begin talking with you, gauging your comfort level, explaining the process in detail and taking the time necessary to answer your questions.
Mat-Su Regional Medical Center and Alaska Imaging Associates work with two types of biopsy technology: stereotactic biopsy and ultrasound guided biopsy. Each has unique strengths, and which one we use is determined by your physician and also depends on what we're looking at. Talk with your doctor or with our staff so that you fully understand your plan of care.
Because a biopsy can create anxiety for some people, we may be able to provide a small dose of a mild sedative to help you relax. Our rooms are warm and soothing and you can choose the type of music to help you feel more comfortable.
