Image-Guided Percutaneous Spine Biopsy
Image-guided percutaneous spine biopsy is a procedure that can be performed safely and efficiently by radiologists. The procedure is performed to determine accurately the composition of abnormal tissue. The information obtained from the biopsy procedure can be used to guide patient management. The radiologist is part of a team that includes the patient, the referring clinician, and a pathologist. Optimal communication among the team members will increase the likelihood of a successful procedural outcome.
