Kidney biopsy is a procedure in which small piece of (6-8 mm) kidney tissue is taken out and subsequently that kidney biopsy sample is processed to evaluate the microscopic picture, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy is done. It is a simple bed side procedure done under local anaesthesia. Ultrasound guidance is required for locating kidneys.
