Amniocentesis Animation (animation)
Amniocentesis can provide valuable information about the health of your baby before it is born. Amniocentesis is a procedure used to obtain a small sample of the amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus during pregnancy.
Breast Biopsy Animation (animation)
A breast biopsy will help you learn if you have cause for concern about a mass seen on mammography or if you have abnormal breast tissue. During this procedure, samples of breast tissue are removed with a special biopsy needle or during surgery. Then the cells are examined to see if they are normal cells or cancer cells. This animation will guide you through the procedure.
Lumpectomy Animation (animation)
You or someone you know may be facing a lumpectomy to remove a breast tumor. A lumpectomy is a type of breast-conserving surgery in which a cancerous lump and portions of the surrounding breast tissue are removed, leaving the breast intact.
