Abdominal (percutaneous) biopsy is a biopsy in which a needle is inserted and a tissue sample removed through the skin. During a kidney (renal) biopsy the doctor removes a small piece of kidney tissue to examine under a microscope for signs of damage or disease. An imaging device helps the doctor guide the needle into the kidney to remove tissue.
HOW CAN BiopSee® HELP YOU
BiopSee® is assisting the procedure by superimposing other image modalities like CT or MRI with higher medical imaging importance. This way the target has a higher chance to be reached and to be further examined. In addition for areas which are hard to be reached using normal needle guides attached on the ultrasound probe, BiopSee® uses high precision tracked needles which can be easily navigated without the use of a fixed needle guide which restricts the movements.
