Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The expansion in the use of image-guided percutaneous biopsy and abdominopelvic abscess drainage reflects the ability of these procedures to offer safe minimally invasive techniques with superior outcomes compared with previously utilized operative approaches. Advances in technique, instruments, and imaging modalities have made these procedures among the most commonly performed in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Increasing demands from patients, referring physicians, and hospitals to offer and excel in these procedures highlight their importance.
