The relationship between location of the biopsy needle and nodules can be retrospectively confirmed by the video in computed tomographic fluoroscopy (CTF)-guided percutaneous needle biopsy. The diagnosable cases increased by 10% with correlation of histopathological findings with CTF images at the time of biopsy. CTF-guided percutaneous needle biopsy of lung nodules is a safe technique. Leaving image data can make a diagnosis of the nodule more accurate.
