Not to be confused with cone biopsies of cervix, which are done by gynecologic surgeons and not by radiologists. Radiologists use fine needles, often with imaging guidance and take a slim, fine core of tissue with a fine needle.

agree  Gabrielle Leyden: except here it refers to the cores, right?

  -> actually the core biopsy is taken with a fine needle by the radiologist, so it is both. Not to be confused with cone biopsies of cervix, which is surgical and not done by radiologists. Thanks Gabrielle.

agree  Dr Sue Levy: confusing if one thinks of the vegetable "carotte", which are conical rather than cylindrical - but of course they are not the only "carottes" ;-)
1 hr
  -> thank you Sue

agree  Cetacea: Like Gabrielle, I think the text refers to the samples rather than the technique, i.e. "biopsy cores" rather than "core biopsies", but that's nitpicking, of course... ;-)

  -> yes,they are the samples. Depends on the sentence whether "biopsy cores" or "core biopsies" is what you need to say. thanks cetacea.
