For Breast Biopsy 11-Gauge Needle Better than 14-Gauge Needle

According to a recent study performed at the Stanford University School of Medicine, stereotactic vacuum-assisted breast needle biopsy is more effective with an 11-gauge needle than the 14-gauge needle.  There is less chance of a false-negative diagnoses with the 11-gauge needle than with the 14-gauge needle.  The study appears in the February 2009 issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.
