Title
Imaging of malignant primitive tumors of the spine
Author
Abstract
Primary malignant tumors of the spine are rare and mainly include chordoma, chondrosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma or primitive neuroectodermal tumor, and osteosarcoma. The final diagnosis is based on the combination of patient age, topographic and histologic features of the tumor, and lesion pattern on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Imaging evaluation includes radiography, CT, bone scintigraphy, and MR imaging. CT is more useful than radiography for evaluating location of the lesion and analyzing bone destruction and matrix, whereas MR has unmatched ability to assess soft tissue extension. This pictorial review provides an overview of the most prevalent primitive malignant tumors of spine.
