Ultrasound-guided Renal Biopsy


Until a few years ago, a Renal biopsy was performed blindly. With the appearance of imaging techniques, the drawbacks of blind renal biopsy have been eliminated.

Real-time ultrasound-guided renal biopsy is currently a consolidated technique. Besides not posing a risk of radiation for the patient, it offers better availability, making it possible to perform “Bedside Biopsy”.

This procedure is far more cost-effective and does not need the use of contrast materials. As it allows for continuous visualisation of the needle’s position in the renal parenchyma, as well as its placement in the required renal area.

This is where the SIFULTRAS-5.2 Ultrasound Scanner comes handy, being an essential diagnostic tool in handling the nephrological patients. Besides that, the ultrasound machine SIFULTRAS-5.2 provides real-time ultrasound-guided renal biopsy with needle visualization, detecting or tumors in kidneys, decreasing the complication rate.

The portable ultrasound scanner can also be used after the biopsy to avoid infra diagnosis of complications.   

One of the following specialists will perform the kidney biopsy at a hospital or an outpatient center: a nephrologist—a doctor who specializes in treating kidney disease. a urologist—a doctor who specializes in treating urologic and sexual problems.
