Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the modality of choice for determining the extent of a primary bone tumor. This article will discuss the MRI techniques needed to accurately define the intramedullary extent of a bone sarcoma, emphasizing the need for non-contrast T1-weighted sequences and highlighting the role of chemical shift imaging.
