Image-Guided Lung Biopsy

Image-Guided Lung Biopsy - What it is

Lung nodules or tumours detected on imaging (x-ray, computed tomography) can be a diagnostic dilemma.  A small piece of tissue can be removed from the abnormal lung lesion to make a diagnosis.  This procedure is called a biopsy.
One of the causes of lung nodules is lung cancer, which is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. It is the second most common cancer in men and third most common in women in Singapore.
