This 3D medical animation shows the removal of a sample of tissue (biopsy) from the colon. A biopsy is usually performed to determine if the cells from a sample of body tissue are abnormal. A major reason to obtain a biopsy is to rule out cancer. Sometimes biopsies are obtained to determine the cause of an unexplained infection, inflammation, swelling, or growth. Item #ANS00189
