Interventional radiologists perform minimally invasive organ biopsies using a needle and imaging technology. During these biopsies, they take a small sample of organ tissue from any organ with abnormal growths. This organ tissue is then sent to a lab where it can be studied for signs of cancer, infections, kidney failure (kidney biopsy) or male infertility (testicular biopsy).
Needle biopsies leave no scars and have faster recovery times than surgical biopsies. The University of Miami Health System interventional radiologists use these procedures to ensure you receive excellent care without invasive surgery.
