CT guided thoracic biopsy is usually performed for the diagnosis of suspicious lung, pleural or mediastinal lesions. endobj CT guided lung biopsy is a commonly performed procedure to obtain tissue for a histological diagnosis in cases of suspected lung cancer. Patients are explained to take small inspirations so that there may be minimal motion once a needle has passed through the pleura, as deeper inspiration will cause significant needle This is a minimally invasive procedure and is an alternative to an open surgical biopsy. Lung nodules are abnormal areas of shadow on the lungs identified on a chest X-ray or CT scan. Imaging mod-alities are fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT), and ultrasound.

Introduction: As metastatic pulmonary adenocarcinomas are routinely investigated for EGFR, KRAS, and ALK mutations/rearrangement, adequacy of CT-guided trans-thoracic needle biopsies (TTNB) needs to be evaluated in respect with the 2011 ATS/ERS/IASLC guidelines. Sensitivity analyses and probabilistic sensitivity analysis were undertaken to identify the more cost-beneficial approach for varying input parameter values. In the study of lung lesions, tissue samples necessary for a pathomorphological assessment may be obtained by different techniques: surgical, bronchoscopic and percutaneous methods (like computed tomography (CT) guided transthoracic needle biopsy (TTNB) by fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) or by core-needle biopsy (CNB)). A small percentage of lung and pleural biopsies may be performed under ultrasound guidance in specific circumstances. Percutaneous biopsy of lung (CT guided) It has been recommended that you have a biopsy of your lung using CT (computerised tomography, which is a specialised form of X-ray) guidance.
