Early experience using a new laser guidance device to assist CT-guided percutaneous musculoskeletal procedures is presented. We describe six cases which demonstrate typical musculoskeletal applications of laser guidance. In our experience laser guidance for these procedures resulted in improved accuracy with no significant increase in biopsy time when a short learning period is considered. Other musculoskeletal procedures may benefit from laser guidance compared with current standard CT-guided techniques, particularly when precision and accuracy are essential.
