Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Irradiation is not necessary for preservation of a core biopsy sample just preserving it in a normal Formalin solution is enough and it gives a very good result very specific which can guide the further course of action in management.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
