Understanding CT Guided Biopsy

What is CT Guided Biopsy?

The CT-guided biopsy is one of the image-guided methods used predominantly in lung and bone biopsies. It is done by guiding a needle through the lesion (or tumour) with the help of CT imaging. This test is minimally invasive and safe.

The person undergoing the test should inform the doctor if they take any medicine for diabetes, blood thinning, or any allergy to contrast.

Before the test, an IV line will be placed on your arm to inject sedatives and painkillers to make you ready for the test. After that, several biopsies will be taken with a CT scan by inserting a needle into the lesion. The entire procedure may take up to 45 minutes based on the location of the lesion.

What is CT Guided Biopsy used for?

  1. To help guide the interventional radiologists instruments to the site of the abnormal growth
  2. To withdraw tissue sample from a suspected tumor (abnormal growth) from a deep seated organ which cannot be reached by surgical methods
