Computed tomography (CT) is a fast imaging alternative for biopsy guidance, which offers the advantage of specific lesion localization and characterization including proximity to other organs and lytic versus sclerotic composition.
The purpose of this video tutorial is to visually demonstrate the use of CT for bone biopsy guidance, in addition to providing detailed written instructions describing the procedure in a step-by-step manner.
|1||Radio-opaque grid or marker to place on the patient’s skin for localization purposes.|
|1||Ink pen to mark the skin|
|1||25 Gauge 1 ½ inch needle|
|1||18 Gauge 1 ½ inch needle|
|10 cc||1%–2% Lidocaine|
|1||Coaxial bone biopsy device: the selection will be based on the depth of the lesion.|
