About Image-Guided Biopsy
Image-guided biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure. Highly skilled radiologists use a needle to draw fluid or a tissue sample to determine whether an area of concern is benign, malignant, or infectious. They use fluoroscopy, CT, or ultrasound to guide the needle to the correct spot, ensuring accurate results. Needle biopsy is less invasive than surgical biopsy and may not require general anesthesia.
Image-guided biopsy is commonly used to diagnose cancer or disease in the following:
Brain & Spine
Head & Neck
