Accurate localization of the kidney during percutaneous biopsy is essential. Ultrasonography has major advantages over other methods for localization. It is noninvasive, safe and accurate. A standard 2.25 or 3.5 MHz transducer can be used in most cases, rather than a special biopsy transducer, unless the biopsied kidney is very small. 60 renal biopsies were performed using ultrasonographic guidance with excellent results.
