Diagnostic tools for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) detection and prognostication are limited, with histology remaining the criterion standard. We evaluated the feasibility and safety of EUS liver biopsy (EUS-LB) in NAFLD staging.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided liver biopsy (EUS-LB) using a 19-gauge (19-G) EUS needle is becoming increasingly popular. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of a 22-G EUS fine needle biopsy (FNB) n...
Variable diagnostic performance of sampling techniques during EUS-guided tissue acquisition of solid pancreatic masses based on needle type [fine-needle aspiration (FNA) versus fine-needle biopsy (FNB...
The objective of this study was to determine the incidence of needle track seeding after ultrasound-guided percutaneous biopsy of indeterminate liver lesions with a coaxial biopsy system without any o...
Combined image-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) and core needle biopsy (CNB) has become the standard of care for diagnosis and/or molecular testing for patients with a solitary lung nodule a...
This will be a randomized controlled trial of all the patients referred to University of Arkansas Medical for Medical Sciences (UAMS) for endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided biopsy of solid...
This is a prospective study to determine the optimal technique for obtaining liver tissue with a smaller caliber (22 gauge) needle and whether a good core biopsy can be obtained without th...
A 19 gauge FNB needle, using same technique as with 22 gauge needle, to obtain liver histological specimen in regards to core length and the number of Complete Portal Triads.
Chronic liver disorders (CLD) are a major cause of morbidity and mortality for individuals in the US. Though serologic analysis will often lead to a conclusive diagnosis, liver biopsy rema...
Rationale: Until now there are no prospective studies comparing the 22 gauge and 25 gauge side-fenestrated and fork-tip needles. In the present study we will compare the two types of need...
