Pediatric Biopsy

A biopsy is a procedure in which a doctor places a small hollow needle through the skin and  into the area of interest to take out tissue samples or fluid (called specimens). Specimens are sent to the laboratory for analysis. This provides a definitive diagnosis of the selected tissue. Frequently biopsied areas include the bone, liver, thyroid, kidney and other organs.
