Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report our experience of needle biopsy over the past two and a half, viz. 395 cases. We find that the technique meets the needs of diagnosis and research very satisfactorily. We describes its advantages over open biopsy and recommend it in preference to the latter, provided that the necessary technical skill for processing the sample is available.
