M. Davoudi, M.S.Z. Sharifi and F. Rahim

The purpose of this study was to observe the complications of needle biopsy of chest lesions guided by the CT scan among the patients studied. This is a descriptive epidemiologic study. All patients that referred to Imam Khomeini in Ahwaz from 2005 to 2007 and it was necessary to biopsy the chest lesions were studied. Snapshot files on lung CT scan lesion size and depth measurements and the biopsy samples obtained were sent to pathology. After the biopsy the patient CT scan was to act as the presence or absence of symptoms, proper action was made. Among 102 patients studied, 85 patients (83.4%) were uncomplicated, but 8 patients (7.9%) were suffered from pneumothorax. In the study were made between lesion size and depth of complications found no correlation, but between lesion location and complications caused there was statistically significant difference. The needle biopsy guided by CT scan due to low complications in many cases is a suitable diagnostic method.
