Abstract

The OnControl coaxial biopsy system (Vidacare Corporation, Shavano Park, TX) includes an inner diamond-tipped access needle and hollow biopsy needle that engage with a battery-powered hand drill. Herein, we report the use of this novel device to perform two CT-guided percutaneous skull biopsies. Both procedures were performed without complication and facilitated a pathologic diagnosis.
