Radio graphs provide the degree of local aggressiveness of the lesion as regard to the appearance, intraosseous extent and exact location within the bone, and internal characteristics such as ossification or calcification of bone tumors. Cortical destruction and peritoneal new bone formation are associated with invasive neoplasms. However, conventional radiography often are not useful in the evaluation of soft-tissue masses. Soft-tissue tumors that are located behind a bone can appear on a radiography as a malignant primary bone tumor with secondary soft tissue extension. However, careful evaluation with magnetic resonance imaging studies will reveal if the lesion is a primary bone tumor extending to the soft tissues or a soft tissue tumor adjacent to bone.
