Both are accurate : Liver biopsies are performed for both focal liver lesions and nonfocal generalized liver disease playing a key role in the diagnosis and prognostication of various diffuse liver dysfunctions. Ct-guided procedures are generally reserved for tissue sampling of focal hepatic lesions, not accessible by ultrasound.
