Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Although MRI is the technique of choice for evaluating most soft-tissue masses, CT often provides valuable complementary information. Specifically, there are distinguishing CT characteristics that can suggest a specific diagnosis, including the lesion's mineralization pattern, density, pattern of adjacent bone involvement, and degree and pattern of vascularity. CONCLUSION. This article provides an overview of the CT evaluation of soft-tissue masses, emphasizing a differential diagnosis based on these CT features.
