MRI of superficial soft tissue masses: analysis of features useful in distinguishing between benign and malignant lesions
Skeletal Radiology, 04/24/2012
Calleja M et al. – This study has shown that a significant proportion of malignant superficial sarcomas measured less than 5 cm in maximal diameter. Fascial edema, skin thickening, skin contact, hemorrhage, and necrosis were found to be highly significant factors indicative of malignancy. Lobulation and peritumoral edema were also significant MRI features.
