Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the clinical application value of high-frequency ultrasound-guided breast mass biopsy in the diagnosis of breast diseases. Materials and Methods: Two hundred patients with breast mass diagnosed clinically and by ultrasound underwent regular color Doppler ultrasound examination on the breast mass and bilateral axillary parts. Then needle biopsy was performed under the guidance of ultrasound and the biopsy tissues were sent to the Department of Pathology for pathological examination. Results: Each patient received biopsy smoothly with a successful puncture rate of 100% under the guidance of ultrasound. No complications occurred, 95% (190/200) of the patients were clearly diagnosed, and 5% (10/200) were orientedly diagnosed. The biopsy examination results were completely consistent with the surgical pathological results in 170 patients, accounted for 85%. Among them, invasive carcinoma in malignant lesions achieved the highest diagnosis coincidence rate (90.1%, 118/131). Conclusion: High frequency ultrasound-guided breast mass biopsy is safe and practical. Its successful rate is high and its pathological results are in high coincidence with the surgical pathological results. Thus, it can provide strong evidence for the diagnosis and identification of benign and malignant breast tumors and for choosing the correct operation scheme.
