Biopsy directed by needle localization is a safe and relatively simple method of obtaining abnormal tissue for histologic examination without sacrificing surrounding normal breast tissue. In the setting of a training institution, accurate results can be expected as technical skills are obtained by a variety of housestaff. In this series of 70 biopsies, the lesion targeted on mammography was removed on the initial attempt in all but 1 instance, for an overall accuracy of 99 percent.
