Experimental: BIP Biopsy System
Biopsy system that enables real-time bioimpedance measurement from the tip of the biopsy needle.
Device: BIP Biopsy System
BIP Biopsy system is essentially similar as traditional biopsy systems but it enables real-time bioimpedance measurement from the tip of the biopsy needle.
- Difference in mean between measured bioimpedance spectra from tumorous and nontumorous tissue [ Time Frame: During liver biopsy (couple of minutes/patient) ]Liver biopsy is performed in traditional way but with biopsy needle that enables bioimpedance measurement from multiple frequencies (spectrum). Tumorous and nontumorous tissue is measured during ultrasound guided biopsy procedure and the tumorous tissue type is verified by histological biopsy sample analysis. The bioimpedance spectra (impedance and phase angle) are compared with each other and differences in means of the spectra calculated. The data analysis is performed offline.
