Skull Biopsy

A bone biopsy of skull lesions can be done percutaneously with CT guidance. Such a biopsy might be needed in patients who have a history of cancer and who develop new lesions seen on bone scan and/or CT scans. Via a mini incision, a bone trocar is used to obtain a bone biopsy of the suspected abnormal skull bone.
