Needle Biopsy

For biopsies of thyroid, neck nodes and glands, our specialist inserts a fine needle into an area just under the skin to gather a sample of cells for laboratory testing.

A fine-needle aspiration and core needle biopsy can:

  • Diagnose abnormal-appearing tissue, enlarged lymph nodes, nodules or masses (solid lumps), cysts (fluid-filled lumps) or body fluid.
  • Help the Toll Gate Radiology experts make a diagnosis or rule out possible medical conditions such as cancer.
  • Be used in association with a CT scan, digital mammogram or ultrasound
