Finding the Answers and Solutions

A biopsy provides details about a mass that may have been found during a screening or test. Biopsies determine if a growth is either cancerous or benign and, if cancerous, identify the stage of cancer. Your doctor can then create a treatment plan for you, tailoring it to your diagnosis and needs.

At AdventHealth Dade City, our imaging team works closely with your physician to offer several types of biopsy. These procedures are guided by imaging technology, like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound.

Needle Biopsy
Fine-needle, or core-needle, biopsies extract cells or a small core of tissue.

Stereotactic Biopsy
Computer and imaging technology guide a needle to a precise spot where a tissue sample can be collected.

Open or Surgical Biopsy
A sample of the growth, or the entire growth, is taken through a small incision in the skin.
