AbstractThe aim of the present study was to assess Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the evaluation of Primary and Secondary bone tumours.
Methods: The Prospective study was conducted at Padmashree Dr D. Y. Patil Medical College and Hospital and research centre, Pimpri Pune from September 2020 to July 2022. 100 cases were included in the study.
Results: Males were 51% and females were 49% among the patients. Femur was the most common location of the tumor (38%), followed by tibia (8%) in our patients. 30% of the patients had soft-tissue component in MRI. Out of soft tissue component of tumors in MRI, 17% were not defined and there was no soft tissue component in 70%. Cortical involvement was noted in 50% of the patients in the MRI. Outgrowth-continuation of cortex (14%) followed by Cortical destruction (8%) were the most common cortical involvement findings. Neurovascular findings were found in 8% of the patients.
Conclusion: Overall, the characteristics of the primary and secondary bone tumours were well observed in the MRI. Osteochondroma was the most common diagnosis from MRI. Margins were found in the almost all the patients, with 50% being well-defined. Cortical involvement was noted in 50% of the patients. Neurovascular findings were found in 8% of the patients.
