Bone Tumors: A Practical Guide to Imaging is a concise guide to common tumors encountered by physicians in daily practice.

The book includes explanations of methods for properly evaluating bone lesions, common imaging modalities used for diagnosis, and individual chapters covering different classes of benign and malignant tumors, including cartilage, osseous, fibrous, miscellaneous, and bone metastases. The book concludes with a comprehensive selection of 75 unknown cases, including a brief clinical history, description of imaging findings, best differential diagnoses, and short discussion revealing the most likely diagnosis. Bone Tumors is an ideal resource for practicing physicians and residents in radiology, orthopedic surgery, pathology, and primary care.
