The technique of frameless stereotactic biopsy has been shown previously, in both laboratory and in vivo studies, to achieve a level of accuracy at least equal to frame-based biopsy. The investigators have validated the technique in a large clinical series. The frameless and frame-based series were concurrent, comprising 76 and… CONTINUE READING
