When is ultrasound-guided biopsy done?

Ultrasound-guided biopsy can be used to diagnose a variety of conditions, including breast cancer, thyroid cancer, and kidney cancer. It is often used to biopsy areas that are difficult to reach with other types of biopsy, such as areas behind the breastbone or in the lungs.

Types of US Guided Biopsy

There are two main types of ultrasound-guided biopsy: core needle biopsy and vacuum-assisted biopsy.

  • Core needle biopsy uses a needle with a larger diameter than that used for fine needle aspiration. This allows the doctor to remove a larger sample of tissue, which can improve the accuracy of the diagnosis.
  • Vacuum-assisted biopsy uses a needle with a hollow core. The needle is inserted into the suspicious area and then a vacuum is applied to draw tissue into the needle. This allows the doctor to remove a larger sample of tissue than is possible with core needle biopsy.
