And the most important stage of accurate diagnosis of breast lumps is biopsy from suspicious lumps in the breast with vacuum biopsy methods under mammography or ultrasound guidance and core needle biopsy. In this educational review article, the latest biopsy methods under the tomosynthesis guide and the training of methods, techniques and related tips and tricks and troubleshooting are described. In the attached file, a translation of the 20th chapter of Mammographic lmaging (fourth edition) written by shelly L.Lille and wendy J.Marshall , which the presenters of this review article contributed to its translation, is provided.
