CT guided paravertebral biopsy of the mediastinum

CT guided paravertebral biopsy of the mediastinum

Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography 8(3): 575-578

A simple technique for computed tomographic guided biopsy of esophageal and periesophageal lesions is described. The method utilizes an extrapleural, paravertebral route that allows access to the periesophageal area without entering the lung or pleural cavity.
