CT Guided Biopsy

CT (computed tomography) guided biopsies are done percutaneously when lesions are not palpable and cannot be done in the clinical setting. CT guided biopsies offer a noninvasive alternative to open surgical biopsies.

The image to the right shows a needle placed inferior to the foramen ovale. The second case below shows an orbital lesion that was biopsied with a fine needle technique.
