CT-guided percutaneous biopsy of intrathoracic lesions.

Lal H, Neyaz Z, Nath A, Borah S - Korean J Radiol (2012)

Bottom Line: Percutaneous CT-guided needle biopsy of mediastinal and pulmonary lesions is a minimally invasive approach for obtaining tissue for histopathological examination.Although it is a widely accepted procedure with relatively few complications, precise planning and detailed knowledge of various aspects of the biopsy procedure is mandatory to avert complications.In this pictorial review, we reviewed important anatomical approaches, technical aspects of the procedure, and its associated complications.

ABSTRACT
Percutaneous CT-guided needle biopsy of mediastinal and pulmonary lesions is a minimally invasive approach for obtaining tissue for histopathological examination. Although it is a widely accepted procedure with relatively few complications, precise planning and detailed knowledge of various aspects of the biopsy procedure is mandatory to avert complications. In this pictorial review, we reviewed important anatomical approaches, technical aspects of the procedure, and its associated complications.

Mentions: A sterile drape can be fashioned to hold the needle and to maintain the desired needle angulation. This technique is especially useful when skin to pleura depth is short, resulting in poor fixing force (Fig. 9) (7). A sterile drape may also be used to support the needle when needle entry ranges from the lateral aspect of the chest wall in the supine or prone position (Fig. 10).
