Sensitivity and specificity study of fine needle aspiration biopsy by CT scan in intracavitary tumors
PDF size: 541.12 Kb.
ABSTRACTObjective: To evaluate the role of computed tomography in image guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Material and methods: Descriptive-retrospective study. Thirty procedures were included in 28 patients between aged 30-90 years old, with intracavitary tumors. Results: The biopsies were adequate in 80% for diagnosis with 100% of specifity for malignancy and 83% sensibility. Conclusions: Computed tomography guided biopsy is a useful in minimal invasive procedures. The fine needle aspiration biopsy allows distinction between neoplastic and no neoplastic lesions. It aides in giving prompt directed treatment with decreased costs and hospitalization, it has minimum complication rate and high diagnostic accuracy.
