A biopsy procedure is necessary to diagnose various medical conditions. The procedure requires a needle to be placed into an abnormality. The tissue sample is sent to a pathologist for microscopic evaluation.

 

Summit Radiology provides all forms of biopsy procedures utilizing the latest imaging technologies. The imaging equipment allows a radiologist to continuously monitor the biopsy needle. This ability to watch the needle allows the radiologist to avoid puncturing vital structures during the biopsy procedure. It also allows the radiologist to confirm exact needle tip position. Summit Radiology is a leader in Northeast Indiana in this area of Medicine. With our sophisticated imaging capabilities, we are able to maximize the diagnostic yield while minimizing procedure risk and discomfort for our patients.
