Abstract

We reviewed the current devices, techniques, guiding images, indications and complications of needle biopsy with CT guidance. The development of new devices such as automated cutting needle has enabled radiologists to obtain tissue specimens of good quality at biopsy. Techniques such as the tandem or coaxial method ensure more a more accurate biopsy route. And helical CT and CT fluoroscopy have markedly shortened the time required for needle biopsy. However, we sometimes encounter minor complications, and rarely major ones, during and after needle biopsy. Some of these complications may be caused by malpractice. Therefore it is important always to pay attention to the possibility of complications of needle biopsy and to minimize radiation exposures from CT fluoroscopy.
