Needle Biopsy Procedures in Houston and Surrounding Areas
Needle biopsy is a procedure performed by Synergy Vascular and Interventional radiologists to identify the cause of a lump or mass, or other abnormal condition in the body. It has replaced the need for many open surgical biopsy procedures. During the procedure, our highly-trained and board-certified interventional radiologist inserts a small needle, guided by X-ray, CT or ultrasound into the abnormal area. A sample of tissue is removed and given to a pathologist who looks at it under a microscope to determine the nature of the abnormality — for example: cancer, a benign (non-cancerous) growth, infection or scar.
