Breast Biopsy

3-D Hologic Breast Biopsy Table

Delta County Memorial Hospital has the first 3-D prone breast biopsy table in the State of Colorado and the fourth in the nation. With improved speed and efficiency, patients are more comfortable. There is superior performance using less procedure time with exceptional image quality and easy 360-degree access. This new 3-D technology may help pinpoint subtle lesions and calcifications found during 2D and 3D mammography exams.

A Breast Biopsy is used to take tiny samples of your breast tissue that can be studied under a microscope. This procedure uses x-rays to find the tissue to be removed. It may prevent the need for an open (surgical) biopsy.
