Biopsy (Imaging-Guided)

An imaging-guided biopsy is typically performed after an abnormality has been detected in part of the body or organ. A biopsy is the removal of tissue samples from the abnormal area with a thin needle or comparable instrument. In image-guided biopsies, a computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound is used to guide the radiologist to the exact location of the abnormal tissue.
