Liver Biopsy

A liver biopsy is used to help physicians assess the health of the liver. During the biopsy, a needle is inserted through the skin and into the liver. A small sample of liver tissue is removed and sent to a lab to be examined. It is important to follow diet instructions prior to the exam. You will be asked to stop blood thinning medicines prior to the procedure.
