What is CT Guided Biopsy?
Computed Tomography (CT) Guided Biopsy is a procedure where a thin needle is used to withdraw fluid or tissue sample from deep seated organs. CT scan is used to create real time image of the organ from which the sample is to be withdrawn and specialist then inserts a thin needle (being guided by the real time CT scan) and withdraws tissue sample from the target organ.
Why is CT Guided Biopsy done?
- To help guide the interventional radiologists instruments to the site of the abnormal growth
- To withdraw tissue sample from a suspected tumor (abnormal growth) from a deep seated organ which cannot be reached by surgical methods
Preparation for CT Guided Biopsy
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
