Biopsy Guns, End-Cut, Disposable

Definition : Single-use end-cut biopsy guns designed for the automatic extraction of core tissue samples (typically in the form of a cylinder) from an anatomic structure of the body. End-cut disposable biopsy guns typically consist of a single-use, spring-loaded mechanism that advances the inner disposable biopsy needles, which work like a pair of pincers, cutting off the sample and retracting it in the cannula without suction. Biopsy guns are used mainly to obtain samples of soft tissue from internal organs, including the kidneys, prostate, pancreas, and liver and the breast. The procedures are frequently performed under image guidance (e.g., radiographic, ultrasonic, magnetic resonance).
