A biopsy is taking one or more samples of the tissue to further examine them under special microscopes to see the samples in greater detail. Kidney Biopsy samples can be taken in two ways one is percutaneous biopsy and open biopsy. A kidney biopsy can be performed by specialists who can be a nephrologist, urologists, transplant surgeons, or interventional radiologists. The percutaneous biopsy is where a needle is placed through the skin that lies over the kidney and is guided to the right place in the kidney, usually with the help of ultrasound. Open biopsy is when a surgery is performed where the kidney sample is taken from the kidney and the sample is sent to a pathology lab to check for the signs of disease. Risks involved in the biopsy are small yet they are advised to be discussed with a medical professional.
