Patient Follow-Up After Concordant Histologically Benign Imaging-Guided Biopsy of MRI-Detected Lesions
American Journal of Roentgenology, 05/25/2012Sung JS et al.
Imaging–guided biopsy, using MRI or sonographic guidance, of MRI–detected lesions may result in false–negative results that are not appreciated at the time of the biopsy. A 6–month follow–up MRI is suggested as the most appropriate interval to identify lesions that were missed at biopsy without clinically significant delay in diagnosis of those lesions that are malignant.
