Short summary

Harvesting good quality tissue samples are essential to customize oncologic treatments. Minimally invasive techniques such as computed tomography (CT) guided biopsies are commonly used to obtain these samples. To avoid excessive radiation of patient and staff, CT scans are performed after maneuvering the needle, meaning that the radiologist performs the intervention without real-time feedback. The team developed a device that helps the aiming by continuously measuring the angles of the biopsy needle. With this method, the procedure will be faster and more accurate, the radiation exposure of the patient can be minimized and hopefully, morbidity can also be decreased.
