Stereotactic biopsy

General

Stereotactic biopsy is carried out for symptomatic lesions in the brain parenchyma when diagnostic clarification is important. This particularly applies to lesions that are inaccessible for resection, or when a type of tumor is suspected that requires a treatment other than surgical resection.

Stereotactic biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure with several advantages.

  • Low morbidity and mortality
  • Avoidance of a major operation involving opening the cranium
  • Cost savings
  • Fewer bed-days in the hospital  

Indications

  • Brain tumor

Goal

  •  To establish a diagnose in order to evaluate further treatment
