Screening/Diagnostic Services > Interventional Breast Biopsy

If you need a biopsy, whether you’ve had your mammogram at Nyack Hospital or elsewhere, we’ll schedule one right away. With our state of the art imaging equipment, we are able to offer a host of image-guided interventional breast biopsy procedures, frequently avoiding the need for a surgical biopsy.  These procedures include stereotactic biopsy using mammography as well as ultrasound guided core biopsy and fine-needle aspirations. The interventional breast biopsy procedures listed here are relatively quick and nearly painless.  These procedures take approximately 45 minutes to perform using only local anesthesia, and most patients return to their normal activities within a day or two.  

The Breast Center at Nyack Hospital is fully accredited and recognized as a Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and we are one of the leading community hospitals in the Northeast performing these highly accurate outpatient procedures.
