Abstract

As described in the previous chapter, modern surgery has changed the demands on the radiologic examination to a considerable degree during the last 10 or 15 years. Commensurately, there have been remarkable developments in the radiologic modalities and procedures, as will be discussed in the next chapter. This has meant that the protocols, technical procedures, and the information gained by radiology today are in many respects different from those of only a decade ago. Three aspects of musculoskeletal tumors should be evaluated radiologically: the local behavior of the tumor, the diagnosis, and the local extent.
