Image-Guided Thyroid Biopsy/Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA)
What is an Image-Guided Thyroid Biopsy?
During an Image-Guided Thyroid Biopsy, sound waves are used to help guide the precise placement of a fine needle within the suspicious thyroid nodule so that a tissue sample may be extracted. This process is called Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA). At Fairfax Radiology, this procedure is similar to a blood draw, relatively fast and, through our partnership with Old Dominion Pathology, provides immediate results, resulting in your peace of mind.
