What is Interventional
Interventional oncology is minimally invasive therapy for patients with liver, colorectal, lung, bone/soft tissue, kidney, and metastatic cancers.
A biopsy is the removal of tissue to examine it for disease.
How it Works
Tissue samples can be taken from any part of the body, in this case by an interventional radiologist with a small needle. Based on the type of biopsy, small samples of tissue are removed with the use of either X-ray, CT or ultrasound.
