CT Guided Biopsies


CT Guided Biopsies

We have pioneered the use of routine core biopsies as against fine-needle aspirations in different parts of the body, especially the lungs.


Instructions for CT Guided Biopsy

Pre-Biopsy Assessment
  1. First, it is necessary to do a pre-biopsy assessment of the recent scans that may include MRI, PET/CT or CT scan to plan the biopsy properly.
  2. For this, it is necessary to submit all recent scans in advance. The front desk will guide you. Please note that there is a charge of Rs. 4,500 for the pre-assessment, which will be absorbed in the total cost of the biopsy procedure. However, if the biopsy is not possible, not indicated or not to be done for any reason, then an opinion report will be given against the charge taken for the pre-assessment.
  3. The cost of the biopsy is Rs. 27,500. This does not include the histopathology and microbiology charges, which will be paid separately either by you directly or through us, depending on where the samples are sent. Please see the Reports Section at the end of this sheet for more information.
 Blood Tests
  1. It is important to make sure that the body's ability to clot the blood is normal. Normal PT, PTT and INR test results, done within 1 week of the biopsy are needed.
  2. If the patient is on any blood-thinners (anti-coagulants), then these have to be stopped for between 3 to 5 days. The common blood thinners are aspirin and clopidogrel. Please give us a list of blood thinners you are or maybe on.

  1. Our preferred providers for histopathology are Dr. Anita Borges' team at Centre for Oncopathology and Dr. Jay Mehta at Neuberg Oncopath. Both of them collect the samples from our centre and we can collect the payment on your behalf. It is also fine if you would like to personally go and deliver the samples to them.
  2. If microbiology is needed, then all the tests will be sent to Hinduja Hospital or Unilab – they come and pick up the samples and we will collect the payment on your behalf. We will send the reports to you whenever they are ready.
Delivery of Report
For biopsies, the reports depend on the pathologist. For drainages, there are no reports.
