Percutaneous Computed Tomography (CT) - guided biopsy is a well-established procedure to acquire tissue from various organs. It can also be used as an alternate method to biopsy the pancreas once other attempts have failed to obtain tissue for histopathological tests, and well-trained and experienced interventional radiologists can perform the procedure precisely. To demonstrate our experience with the detour technique, we present the case of a 68-year-old woman with a pancreatic uncinate process tumor noted on abdominal CT who was diagnosed by percutaneous CT-guided pancreas biopsy.
