Breast Biopsy

Sometimes an abnormal mammogram, breast ultrasound and/or Breast MRI will recommend a biopsy of the concerning area. Our Breast Imaging Navigator will contact you to schedule the biopsy at one of our facilities. Depending on the initial images, our radiologist will determine which type of imaging guidance will be most appropriate.  Please call Debbie Woolums, our Breast Imaging Navigator, if you have any questions at 707-646-4785.

Exam Preparation

Please follow any pre-exam instructions. For example, we may want you to stop taking any blood thinners for 7 days prior to the biopsy. Please arrange for someone to accompany you so they can drive you to and from the biopsy appointment.
