Why so many titanium clips?

I didn’t find any references to that many clips in one person. But placing them is standard of care for breast biopsy. Also I found that a reaction to them was very rare. I am not understanding why she wants to place 6 in one biopsy site. Did you ask her about this?

Thank you Chris for your response. I apologize for the delay responding. Yes I believe the conversation was something like, "Six! Why would I need so many?" Of course I don't remember word for word but I believe the response was. they need to mark the area clearly in case of a cancer diagnosis and additional surgery becoming necessary.
