Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Standard percutaneous bone biopsy involves manual needle insertion. Recently, a battery-powered needle drilling biopsy system (OnControl) has been introduced. We report our experience using this drill biopsy system for CT-guided percutaneous bone biopsy in 25 patients.

CONCLUSION:

CT-guided percutaneous biopsy using the OnControl bone access system is a safe, quick, and effective method for sampling bone lesions visible on CT.
