2002 Use of Real-Time Magnetic Resonance Guidance to Assist Bone Biopsy in Pediatric Malignancy

Location: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/109/1/e18

Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (MRI) has the advantage of demonstrating lesions not visualized by other radiologic modalities. We present a case involving pediatric malignancy where MR-guided bone biopsy confirmed correct histologic diagnosis and was used to plan additional treatment. A 2-year, 9-month-old boy had a history of spontaneous regression of...

Closed vertebral biopsy

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/65-B/2/140

A study of cadaveric vertebral biopsy and a review of 100 clinical biopsies has shown that needles and trephines producing tissue specimens of two millimetres or more in diameter can be expected to give a high degree of diagnostic accuracy. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate was a more useful screening investigation...

Cytological diagnosis of bone tumours

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/78-B/2/258

Our study suggests that fine-needle aspiration biopsy is a valid option for the diagnosis of bone tumours. It is a simple outpatient procedure which gives sufficient cytological material for the correct diagnosis in 80% of cases. As with histological analysis of material from open biopsy, the cytological assessment must agree...

Cytological diagnosis of skeletal lesions

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/82-B/5/673

ine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a safe and efficient method for the discrimination between benign, primary malignant and metastatic bony lesions. We have now studied metastatic lesions to assess the diagnostic accuracy and to ascertain whether FNAB allows identification of the primary lesion. Between 1990 and 1997, 447 patients were...

Diagnosis of Primary Bone Tumors with Image-guided Percutaneous Biopsy

Location: http://radiology.rsna.org/content/223/3/731.full

One hundred ten consecutive patients with primary bone tumors underwent biopsy with computed tomography (CT) or fluoroscopy.
CONCLUSION: Percutaneous biopsy of primary bone tumors is safe and accurate for diagnosis and grade of specific tumor. In cases with nondiagnostic biopsy, open-procedure biopsy is likely to be associated with similar diagnostic...

Fine-needle bone biopsy to diagnose osteomyelitis

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/76-B/2/311

In 30 patients in whom osteomyelitis was suspected fine-needle bone biopsies (FNBB) were taken at the same time as bone was aspirated for bacteriological examination. The diagnosis of osteomyelitis was eventually confirmed in 15 patients; the other 15 had myositis (3), arthritis (3), trauma (2), microgeodic phalangeal syndrome (2), haematoma...

Needle biopsy of musculoskeletal lesions

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/73-B/3/498

Needle biopsies, performed on 208 consecutive patients and interpreted at the London Bone Tumour Service over a two-year period, were reviewed. A correct diagnosis was reached in 97% (133 out of 137) using this technique alone. Needle biopsy is safe and accurate when undertaken in consultation within a bone tumour...

Percutaneous CT-guided biopsy of the spine

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2443265/

Biopsies of lesions in the spine are often challenging procedures with significant risk of complications. CT-guided needle biopsies could lower these risks but uncertainties still exist about the diagnostic accuracy. Aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of CT-guided needle biopsies for bone lesions of the...

Recurrence of an osteosarcoma in a needle biopsy track

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/75-B/6/977

Percutaneous needle biopsy was introduced 60 years ago but only more recently has it been used for the diagnosis of primary bone tumours. It is accurate, rapid, and is associated with fewer complications than open biopsy. Care is required because of the theoretical risk of recurrence in the track of...

Ultrasound-guided needle biopsy of primary bone tumors

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/82-B/1/50

Needle biopsy is an established technique for the histological diagnosis of bone tumours, usually guided by fluoroscopy or CT. Surface lesions and aggressive tumours which have extended through the cortex are also amenable to imaging with ultrasound (US). We have assessed the diagnostic accuracy of US-guided Trucut needle biopsy in...
