Abstract

Objective: to discuss the clinical value of digital X-radiography (DR), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in diagnosing bone tumors; Methods: 45 bone tumor patients accepted from November 2010 to February 2013 were retrospectively analyzed. All 45 patients underwent DR examination, wherein 35 cases underwent CT examination and 21 cases underwent MRI examination. Results: DR and CT are similar in displaying bone tumor bone destruction, hyperplasia, sclerosis and lesion border. However, DR is not as prominent as CT in displaying spine, basis cranii and pelvic lesions, and CT is more prominent for tiny lesion as thin as pin-point. In addition, it is more prominent than DR in displaying soft tissue shadow. DR is the best in displaying periosteal reaction, MRI is the most specific in displaying bone marrow edema and soft tissue giant tumor shadow, and it is the worst in the aspect of displaying bone destruction, hyperplasia, sclerosis, calcified plaque, etc. Conclusion: clinical diagnosis of bone tumor is still based on DR, CT can display tumor scope and fine structure, MRI has advantages in displaying soft tissue condition and spinal cord edema. Disease condition should be combined clinically for selecting diagnosis mode.
