This page features programs and case studies specific to EUS-guided liver biopsy, a procedure that has been shown to have better diagnostic accuracy and improved visualization compared to standard approaches1. In particular, fine needle biopsy (FNB) offers advantages over traditional approaches as it is a more targeted approach, particularly for focal lesions, and may therefore result in a higher yield1.
