Resident experience associated with lung biopsy outcomes: A cross-sectional study of diagnostic radiology residents. Does the level of training matter?
from Kansas Journal of Medicine
Introduction. Efficient execution of image-guided percutaneous biopsy is a procedural competency milestone in radiology training. Despite the importance of achieving such mastery, literature on successful execution by residents is limited. The purpose of this study was to evaluate resident performance as measured by nondiagnostic biopsy and major complication percentages, on CT-guided transthoracic core needle biopsies (TTNB) of lung and mediastinal lesions.
