Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The case of a female patient with a normal mammography of first level screening and a control mammography showing the presence of a cluster of microcalcifications, is discussed. The case history is carefully examined also based on previous investigations. The patient decided to undergo stereotactic vacuum-assisted biopsy (mammotome biopsy) that was performed elsewhere. Indications, advantages and possible complications of the procedure are analyzed.
