Abstract

This chapter describes important aspects of liver biopsy. A liver biopsy specimen consists of approximately 1/50,000 of the total hepatic mass. Types of liver biopsy are percutaneous liver biopsy (PCLB), fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA), and transjugular liver biopsy (TJLB). Liver biopsy devices are core-aspiration needle and sheathed cutting needle. Percutaneous needle core biopsy without imaging guidance is excellent for diagnosing diffuse liver diseases, such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and metabolic diseases. Indications of liver biopsy, diagnostic, prognostic, and management are also discussed in this chapter.
