- Small lung biopsies (core needle biopsies and transbronchial biopsies) are the most common-and often the first-lung sample obtained when a radiologic abnormality is detected and tissue diagnosis is required. When a neoplastic diagnosis cannot be made but pathologic abnormalities are present, it is useful for pathologists to have a list ("menu") of specific nonneoplastic diagnoses that can be made in these samples.

Touch imprint (TI) cytology of needle core biopsies (NCB) in pathology laboratories: A practice survey of participants in the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Non Gynecologic Cytopathology (NGC) Education Program.
Intra-procedural assessment of touch imprint (TI) cytology from needle core biopsies (NCB) is used to ensure sample adequacy and to provide immediate diagnosis in various settings. We aimed to survey ...
There is evidence that 4 or 5 gastric cancer biopsies are required for accurate HER2 interpretation. However, the number of biopsies that need to be taken to reach this number of viable cancer biopsie...
Biopsy needles are standard medical devices for extracting biological tissue with the purpose of diagnosing a specific anomaly such as cancerous masses, or lumps. The outcome of these procedures great...
The purpose of the study was the characterization of adverse events (AEs) after fine-needle aspiration biopsies (FNABs) of thyroid nodules, as well as possible predisposing factors.
When a breast lesion is suspected based on a physical exam, mammography, or ultrasound, a stereotactic core needle biopsy (CNB) is usually performed to help establish a definitive diagnosis. CNBs are ...
Primary purpose: Complications and rehospitalizations after transperineal prostate biopsy MRI-guided are reduced than transrectal prostate biopsies. Secondary purposes: - ...
Purpose: Patients with peripheral lung nodules require evaluation for lung cancer. Our aim is to assess the diagnostic yield of a new technique, transbronchial cryobiopsies, in patients at...
Needle biopsy samples are routinely collected to evaluate cytomorphology, immunohistochemical markers and for mutational analysis. With regular use of immunotheraputic interventions, needl...
Background: There is an ongoing interest in developing Endoscopic Ultrasound /Fine Needle Aspiration (EUS-FNA) needles that can provide tissue core biopsies for a true histological (rather...
Lung cancer is one of the most deadly types of cancer and the leading cause of death in cancer in Sweden. Five year survival is 10% in men and 15% in women. Approximately 3300 individuals ...
Clinically atypical nevi (usually exceeding 5 mm in diameter and having variable pigmentation and ill defined borders) with an increased risk for development of non-familial cutaneous malignant melanoma. Biopsies show melanocytic dysplasia. Nevi are clinically and histologically identical to the precursor lesions for melanoma in the B-K mole syndrome. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A mitochondrial encephalomyopathy characterized clinically by a mixed seizure disorder, myoclonus, progressive ataxia, spasticity, and a mild myopathy. Dysarthria, optic atrophy, growth retardation, deafness, and dementia may also occur. This condition tends to present in childhood and to be transmitted via maternal lineage. Muscle biopsies reveal ragged-red fibers and respiratory chain enzymatic defects. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p986)
Usage of a single needle among two or more people for injecting drugs. Needle sharing is a high-risk behavior for contracting infectious disease.
The use of needles usually larger than 14-gauge to remove tissue samples large enough to retain cellular architecture for pathology examination.
Removal and examination of tissue obtained through a transdermal needle inserted into the specific region, organ, or tissue being analyzed.
