The purpose of this study was to compare needle detection using a commercially available vibrating needle system that is used with color Doppler sonography and conventional real-time needle guidance during ultrasonographically guided intervention. Twenty-four paired (48 total) sonographically guided needle placements were performed in 22 patients for fine needle biopsy. Two patients underwent two additional needle placements at later times and, therefore, underwent a total of four needle passes… CONTINUE READING
