adiography is the optimal initial imaging modality for evaluating undiagnosed primary bone tumors. The advantage of radiographic technique is to collapse the density of all points in the imaging plane into a 2D image. The resulting unique anatomic information allows the efficient evaluation of characteristics that reflect

the biologic activity or growth rate of primary bone tumors, such as lesion margins, perios- teal reaction, cortical expansion, thinning, and destruction.

Educational Objectives

1. To understand how the radiographic

characteristics of the margins of primary bone tumors reflect the biologic activity/growth rate of the lesions

2. To learn the radiographic principles of

bone tumor margin classification

3. To identify the secondary role of corti-

cal expansion and periosteal reaction in the characterization of primary bone tumors

4. To correlate the radiographic appearance

of mineralized matrix with histologic type

5. To understand the advantages and limi-

tations of radiography in the initial evalua- tion of primary bone tumors

Imaging Technique Radiographs are recommended as the initial imaging modality for the evaluation of bone pain [1, 2], and standard radiographic tech- niques are typically adequate for tumor im- aging. The long bones should be imaged with frontal and lateral views, whereas joint imag- ing benefits from the addition of oblique views. Rib imaging should also include oblique views. Radiography is limited in areas that are suscep- tible to large amounts of anatomic overlap and complex bony structures, such as the posterior iliac bones, acetabula, and the spine. CT with multiplanar reformations can be considered in those areas, and MRI is appropriate for deter- mining the local extent of disease.

Imaging Features Imaging plays a key role in establishing the initial diagnosis of bone tumors and subse- quently affects initial management. Undiag-

nosed lesions are best divided into biologically aggressive or nonaggressive categories. Biopsy is indicated if the lesion is aggressive. Other- wise, watchful waiting with follow-up imag- ing can be pursued. Aggressive features are detected on radiographs by evaluation of im- aging characteristics, such as the appearance of the margin, cortical expansion, and perios- teal reaction. Clinical examination findings, such as pain, are also contributory.

Margins After assessment of features such as patient age, the identity of the affected bone, and the location of the tumor in the bone, the tumor it- self must be closely scrutinized. The imaging characteristic that is most reflective of the ag- gressive (typically malignant) or nonaggres- sive (typically benign) nature of primary bone tumors is the appearance of the margin, which is an indicator of the growth rate of the lesion [3, 4]. A radiographic classification of bone tu- mor margins has been developed [5] that identi- fies three main types (Fig. 1). The least-aggres- sive margins (type I) correspond to tumors that are round or ovoid in shape (geographic). Geo- graphic margins have been divided into three subcategories. Type IA margins are the least aggressive, exhibiting a narrow zone of transi- tion from the tumor to the normal surrounding bone and a sclerotic rim (e.g., fibrous cortical defect, fibrous dysplasia, nonossifying fibroma/ fibroxanthoma (Fig. 2). Lesions with type IB margins have no sclerotic rim, while remain- ing well defined with a narrow zone of transi- tion. These margins indicate indeterminate bi- ologic potential and may be seen with benign

Fig. 1—Drawings show margin classification system of primary bone tumors. Type I margins are round or oval and typically correspond to less-aggressive (benign) or less-advanced malignancies than moth-eaten (type II) or permeative (type III) fields of osteolysis. Margin classification system provides general guidelines for determining aggressive from nonaggressive lesions. Information such as patient age, bone affected, and location of tumor in bone are also critical for assessing identity of primary bone tumors.

Fig. 5—Primary Burkett lymphoma of distal femur in 23-year-old woman. Radiograph shows numerous lytic foci of varying size are seen throughout distal femoral diaphysis (brackets). They are not round or oval in distribution and are illustrative of type II (moth-eaten margin). More severe osteolysis is seen in lateral femoral condyle and distal epiphysis, showing fine or fuzzy osteolysis of type III (permeative) margin (arrowheads). Fracture is present at level of lateral metaphyseal region.

Aggressive benign lesions, such as giant cell tumors, can also show this appearance. Type II and III margins are nongeographic

and consist of ill-defined “fields” of bone de- struction. The type II margin is described as moth-eaten and is composed of numerous foci

of osteolysis that vary in size and shape on a

background of relatively intact cortex. The type

gressive appearance and is described as perme-

Fig. 6—Low-grade chondrosarcoma of proximal femur in 84-year-old woman. Low-grade sarcomas can mimic benign lesions and low-grade chondrosarcomas are among most potentially confusing bone tumors. Thickened cortex does not always equate with sclerotic rim. Unlike benign fibroxanthoma in Fig. 1, radiograph shows that entire circumference of this bone is enlarged by low-grade chondrosarcoma. Although large fibrous dysplasias can also enlarge entire circumference of bone, fibrous dysplasia will typically exhibit sclerotic rim with possible fibrous matrix mineralization. This chondrosarcoma has no sclerotic rim and exhibits cartilaginous matrix mineralization (see Figs. 11 and 12 regarding mineralized matrix). In addition to thickening of cortex (arrow), endosteal scalloping of cortex by tumor also thins areas of cortex (arrowhead). Thinning of large sections of cortex by large cartilaginous bone tumors can be indicative of malignancy.

ative. The margin types can be intermingled. Margins are the interface of the tumor with the bone and therefore are typically the most sensi- tive radiographic indicator of lesion behavior. The osteolysis represented by these non-geo- graphic lucent areas is fine or fuzzy in ap- pearance (Fig. 5). Analysis of the margins is readily performed on radiographs, which are inexpensive, easily accessible, and provide a concise assessment of lesion behavior on a limited number of images.

Cortical Expansion Cortical expansion is most commonly seen with benign tumors that grow slowly enough to allow the cortex to remain completely or partially intact. Although not all bone tumors expand the cortex, the degree of cortical ex- pansion, when present, is reflective of the growth rate of the lesion. With a number of notable exceptions, such as low-grade chon- drosarcoma (Fig. 6) and some metastases (e.g., renal cell and thyroid carcinoma), ma- lignancies are more likely to progress rapid- ly and destroy rather than expand the cortex. Lesions that produce mild cortical expansion are typically well marginated and show IA margins (e.g., fibrous cortical defect, fibrous dysplasia). Lesions that produce a larger de- gree of cortical expansion are more likely to predispose to pathologic fracture (e.g., non-

ossifying fibromas/fibroxanthomas, unicam-

eral bone cyst; (Fig. 7). Lesions that exhib-

it a marked degree of cortical expansion can

produce severe local bone deformity or de- struction, even if benign. For example, an an- eurysmal bone cyst may grow across open physes (Fig. 8), predisposing the patient to limb length discrepancy, and giant cell tumor may destroy the articular surface of bone, leading to the need for arthroplasty.

Periosteal Reaction Periosteal reaction can reflect the biologic potential of tumors [6], but it is less specific than other radiographic signs. Highly aggres- sive tumors often result in interrupted or mul- tilaminar periosteal reactions, and the mass effect of the tumor can produce a triangular interface with the periosteum that is termed

a “Codman’s triangle” (Fig. 9). Less-aggres-

sive processes typically produce a unilaminar periosteal reaction, although high-grade sar-

comas may produce unilaminar or no detect- able periosteal reaction.

Matrix and Tumor Mineralization Osteoid, chondroid, and fibrous lesions often produce characteristic mineralization of ma- trix, which is a substance that is located in the extracellular space between tumor cells. Ma- trix is found in benign and malignant tumors

Radiograph shows this large expansile lesion crosses physis into humeral head and also thin cortex, resulting in pathologic fracture (arrow). These features produced bowing deformity of bone. Physeal involvement can predispose to limb length discrepancy.

A, Radiograph shows small fibrous cortical defect is markedly eccentric because it is located in lateral cortex (arrowheads). Nonaggressive lesion shows sclerotic rim (IA margin). Fibrous dysplasia in distal diaphysis is centered in medullary cavity and expands entire circumference of bone. In some respects, this lesion resembles low-grade chondrosarcoma in Figure 6. Nevertheless, it shows ground-glass fibrous matrix and sclerotic distal rim (arrow). B, Radiograph obtained 3 years later shows fibrous cortical defect (arrowheads) has matured and become dense. Because of risk of pathologic fracture caused by cortical thinning, fibrous dysplasia was curetted and packed with dense bone graft, which has incorporated into surgical defect (arrow).
