  • Thyroid nodules are nodules (raised areas of tissue or fluid) which commonly arise within an otherwise normal thyroid gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • There are two types of liquid biopsy (which is not really a biopsy as they are blood tests that do not require a biopsy of tissue): circulating tumor cell assays or cell-free circulating tumor DNA tests. (wikipedia.org)
  • By detecting and quantifying genomic alterations in CTCs and cell-free DNA in blood, liquid biopsy can provide real-time information on the stage of tumor progression, treatment effectiveness, and cancer metastasis risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tests analyze circulating tumor cells (CTCs) Analysis of individual CTCs demonstrated a high level of heterogeneity seen at the single cell level for both protein expression and protein localization and the CTCs reflected both the primary biopsy and the changes seen in the metastatic sites. (wikipedia.org)
  • withdrawn
  • The improvement includes that the instrument is constructed to take multiple biopsy samples without being withdrawn from the body. (google.ca)
  • After the needle is in the proper position, tissue or fluid will be withdrawn. (stdavids.com)

  • tissues
  • MRI Biopsy: The removal of cells or tissues so they can be viewed under a microscope by a pathologist to check for signs of cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • To perform an aspirate in liquid tissues, a needle is inserted inside the body and a sample is extracted. (wikipedia.org)
  • specimen
  • When the specimen is evaluated, in addition to diagnosis, the amount of uninvolved tissue around the lesion, the surgical margin of the specimen is examined to see if the disease has spread beyond the area biopsied. (wikipedia.org)
  • Clear margins" or "negative margins" means that no disease was found at the edges of the biopsy specimen. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, a pathologist would examine a mastectomy specimen, even if a previous nonexcisional breast biopsy had already established the diagnosis of breast cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • cavity
  • Ultrasonography can be used to guide procedures such as treatment for kidney stones with Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, needle biopsies or paracentesis (needle drainage of free fluid inside the abdominal cavity). (wikipedia.org)

  • kidney
  • In practice of this invention, the detoxified blood from an artificial kidney is supplied to the vein through a hypodermic needle which penetrates the inlet septum, the inlet plenum, the inlet channel and the inlet valve and toxified blood is supplied from the vein to the artificial kidney through the outlet valve, the outlet channel, the outlet plenum and an outlet needle which penetrates the outlet septum.
