Abstract

Achieving the required accuracy during such relatively straightforward procedures as tumour biopsy or abscess aspiration remains a challenge especially for the more junior neurosurgeon. A study comparing freehand biopsy with ultrasound-guided biopsy is presented. The use of intraoperative ultrasound increases the accuracy at the expense of a slightly longer operating time. Diagnostic tissue was always obtained using this technique.
