Subject and method:
Minimally invasive ultrasound-guided biopsy may be done in patients with primary inoperable disease, suspicious recurrence of gynecological or non-gynecological malignancy or in case of diagnostic uncertainty of pelvic tumor origin.

Ultrasound-guided minimally invasive bio-psy represents an accessible and relatively simple method useful in many indications, not only in gynecologic oncology.
