Imaging of Soft Tissue Tumors

Overview

 Imaging of Soft Tissue Tumors, Third Edition
Imaging technology plays an essential role in the diagnosis of soft tissue tumors as well as in surgical planning. Not only can imaging studies such as CT and MRI determine the relationship between a tumor and adjacent vessels and nerves, but, because some soft tissue tumors possess specific radiologic presentations, imaging can help pinpoint the tumor type.

Overview

 Imaging of Soft Tissue Tumors, Third Edition
Imaging technology plays an essential role in the diagnosis of soft tissue tumors as well as in surgical planning. Not only can imaging studies such as CT and MRI determine the relationship between a tumor and adjacent vessels and nerves, but, because some soft tissue tumors possess specific radiologic presentations, imaging can help pinpoint the tumor type.

Based on cases seen at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and the Mayo Clinic, this comprehensive reference offers detailed visually supported information on the radiologic evaluation of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like lesions. Inside, readers will explore the full spectrum of soft tissue pathologies, with over 1400 images that highlight both common and atypical presentations. The book’s expert authors offer valuable advice on selecting the most appropriate imaging modality for each tumor type.

Features:

  • Broad scope presents the results of a retrospective analysis of over 31,000 cases of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like masses.
  • Comprehensive coverage addresses lipomatous, vascular and lymphatic, fibrous and fibrohistiocytic, muscle, neurogenic, synovial, extraskeletal osseous and cartilaginous tumors.
  • Detailed information on all imaging modalities—including CT, MRI, radiography, angiography, scintigraphy, ultrasound, and positron emission tomography—are covered, with facts on the strengths and limitations of each to help readers select the most appropriate method.
  • High-quality images aid in the visual diagnosis of typical and atypical tumor presentations.
  • World Health Organization nomenclature (in accordance with the 2013 updated classification) is included throughout the text, emphasizing applicable changes in each chapter.
  • A new chapter examines the imaging of superficial masses.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Sara K Zakel, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description:This book illustrates the full spectrum of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like lesions encountered in clinical practice. It includes important data gathered from the Armed forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) and discusses soft tissue tumors based on the prevalence and distribution of diagnoses by age, sex, and location. The book then covers imaging evaluation, tumor staging, and specific types of tumors and concludes with a review of compartmental anatomy. This update of the 1997 edition incorporates the 2002 WHO Classification of soft tissue tumors.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide a systematic approach to the radiographic evaluation and diagnosis of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like masses.
Audience:This book is written primarily for musculoskeletal radiologists, radiologists in training, and orthopedic surgeons.
Features:This book covers the AFIP data regarding prevalence and distribution of soft tissue tumor diagnoses by age, sex, and location. It then discusses imaging of soft tissue tumors and then details individual types of soft tissue tumors, from lipomatous tumors to extraskeletal osseous and cartilaginous tumors. It also discusses masses which may mimic soft tissue tumors and concludes with a review of compartmental anatomy, necessary for staging. The concise, complete discussions with ample high-quality images are the highlights of the book. There are also great key concept boxes which provide a quick review. The AFIP data/tables are invaluable and the book is very well organized.
Assessment:This wonderful book is indispensable to those learning or practicing musculoskeletal radiology. It is among the best soft tissue imaging books.
