Excerpt

The first needle biopsy of the liver was reported to have been done by Paul Ehrlich in 1883. Liver biopsy remains the gold standard in the diagnosis of several liver disorders. With refinement in techniques, it has emerged as a safe, useful tool for hepatologists managing the gamut of liver pathologies.
