Soft tissue tumours are extremely common although difficult to understand due to a large number of sub-types, leading to a significant increase in their imaging in the last decade. This highly illustrated practical book provides a simplified, systematic approach to imaging, reporting and diagnosing these tumours. It covers all the modalities with emphasis on ultrasound and MRI, along with the newer techniques in these modalities. This concise guide to soft tissue lesions, will help clinicians to quickly understand the spectrum of tumours and identify the appropriate imaging techniques to best serve their patients.
• Provides guidance by international experts on various types of soft tissue tumours (benign, malignant and tumour mimics), their relevant imaging features to help suggest specific or differential diagnosis and when to biopsy and when to refer to specialist centres.
• Proves to be an excellent resource for general and specialist radiologists, radiology trainees, sonographers, sarcoma surgeons and oncologists for day-to-day reporting.
• Discusses the importance of proper imaging and biopsy of tumors and the implications of unplanned excisions in sarcoma.
