Abstract

The main goal for this research project is to look at current trends in surgical biopsy and minimally invasive biopsy for suspicious breast lesions in the state of Vermont. To address this question, the frequency of minimally invasive and surgical breast biopsy for the diagnosis of breast cancer will be determined. We will examine trends overall in the state over time, as well as facility-level variation across the 13 breast imaging radiology facilities in the state. We will also compare biopsy patterns in rural and urban areas based on the population density provided by the Rural-Urban Commuting Area codes. The second goal of this research is to develop evidence regarding outcomes for patients with benign diagnoses on MIBB that go on to surgical excision. We will determine the frequency of malignant cancer detection during surgical excision for specific risk-associated benign lesions.
