How to use InnoFine’s general purpose needle guides:
Biopsy needle guides are utilized typically by a radiologist or surgeon to obtain tissue samples of an abnormality that is discovered in a radiology scan. An ultrasound-guided biopsy is typically performed under general anesthesia. Ultrasound is used to locate the abnormality and a biopsy needle guide is used to pinpoint and guide the needle to the exact location. The tissue that is collected in the needle is then examined by a pathologist.
Ultrasound guides can be general purpose needle guides (commonly used in procedures for small parts, tissue biopsies, fluid aspirations, kidney/liver biopsies, and vascular access) or endocavity needle guides (commonly used for transrectal prostate biopsies, transvaginal biopsies, and transvaginal egg retrieval). Ultrasound guides can be disposable or reusable.
