Biopsy of bone tumors under CT


Biopsy of bone tumors under CT guidance is an invasive medical procedure used to take tissue samples from bone tumors under the supervision of computed tomography (CT). 

Biopsy of bone tumors under CT guidance is an important diagnostic procedure that allows for an accurate diagnosis of bone tumors and determination of the optimal treatment approach. With proper preparation and care after the procedure, most patients recover well without complications.


Candidates for biopsy of bone tumors under CT guidance are typically patients suspected of having tumors in the bones based on symptoms, physical examination, or results of other diagnostic tests such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans. This procedure is usually used to confirm the diagnosis of bone tumors and determine their nature (benign or malignant) for planning further treatment.


Preparation for biopsy of bone tumors usually involves a detailed review of the patient's medical history, symptoms, and results of previous diagnostic tests. Patients may be referred for blood tests and other investigations to assess their overall health and bone marrow function. Before the procedure, the patient will be informed about the procedure itself, potential risks, and complications, and will have the opportunity to ask questions.


During biopsy of bone tumors under CT guidance, the patient is positioned to allow precise guidance of the needle to the target site within the bone. Through a small incision in the skin, the needle is guided to the tumor under CT guidance to take a small tissue sample. The tissue sample is then sent for histopathological analysis for an accurate diagnosis of the tumor.


The results of biopsy of bone tumors using CT guidance allow for an accurate diagnosis of the tumor, which is crucial for determining the treatment plan. Histopathological analysis of the tissue sample provides information about the type of tumor, degree of malignancy, and other characteristics that are important for further disease management.


After the biopsy, patients should follow their doctor's instructions for postoperative care, including wound care and monitoring for any complications such as bleeding, infection, or pain. It is important to avoid strenuous physical work or activities that could strain the biopsy site during the recovery period.
