Title
Soft tissue tumors about the shoulder
Author
Abstract
Soft tissue tumors (STTs) are not infrequent about the shoulder girdle. This article provides a short overview of useful parameters in grading and characterization of those lesions. The most frequent histologic types of STT about the shoulder girdle are also discussed. Benign STTs and mimickers of STTs are emphasized because precise imaging characterization of aggressive STTs is much more difficult than of their benign counterparts. Besides evaluation of the lesions extent, a major role for imaging is to select those lesions that should undergo biopsy.MRI is the preferred imaging technique.
