Ultrasound and CT Guided Biopsies

Radiologic imaging modalities such as CT and ultrasound can be used to direct a needle into abnormal tissue to obtain a sample. In many cases, the sample is then reviewed by our on-site pathologist to determine the adequacy of the sample.

At East River Medical Imaging we perform biopsies of the kidney, liver, lymph nodes, breast, prostate, thyroid and musculoskeletal system.

The biopsy site will determine the duration of the procedure and need for mild sedation.  In all cases we will insure your comfort during the procedure.

Please make sure to discuss the need to stop anti-coagulation prior to the study with your doctor and our scheduler.
