Imaging differentiation of pathologic fractures caused by primary and secondary bone tumors
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Tomography, X-Ray Computed
Pathologic fractures caused by PBT and MBT may be differentiated by a few specific radiographic and CT imaging features, though MRI was poor for characterization of the underlying lesion. Such knowledge may assist radiologists in raising the possibility of a PBT as the cause of a pathologic fracture.
