Brief Summary:
This study investigates whether a new image fusion technology can reduce patient radiation dose from CTs and/or procedure time during biopsies of lung, liver or kidney.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Liver Biopsy Lung Biopsy Kidney Biopsy Device: SCENERGY-guided Biopsy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study proposes the use of a new fusion technology, Scenergy (Clear Guide Medical; FDA 510(k) K171677), which fuses CT images to real-time US images to minimize the drawbacks of each modality while enhancing their benefits. Such benefits include, the reduction of radiation dose to the patient with the fusion of initial CT imaging overlaying the live US images. The fused imaging software allows the operator to watch the needle tip advance towards the lesion on both live US and overlaid CT imaging. In such a setting, the operator would only need to perform an initial CT scan, advance the needle into position using fused US/CT images, and a final CT scan to ensure needle tip location. This eliminates interval CT scans that are usually required after each incremental needle position adjustment, and thus, reduces radiation dose to the patient and wasted procedural time during the incremental CT scans.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: testing whether biopsies and ablations performed with the SCENERGY result in less patient radiation dose or reduced procedure time compared to biopsies performed under CT-guidance only.
Masking: None (Open Label)
Masking Description: Masking is impossible due to the hardware that is present when using the SCENERGY
