When MRI Scores Over Plain X-rays

When MRI Scores Over Plain X-rays
This 65-years old lady presents with pain in the left shoulder. A radiograph shows an osteolytic lesion with an aggressive appearance. There is mild expansion and an altered trabecular pattern. There is no characteristic diagnosis at this stage and the differentials include metastasis, myeloma, lymphoma and perhaps a primary bone tumor. The MRI though clearly shows a cartilage tumor, which given the length of the lesion and the endosteal scalloping is suggestive of chondrosarcoma. A biopsy confirmed this.
