MSK Imaging diploma (16 Gb) lectures

part of the course 

  •  Soft tissue masses are very common and have an exceptionally large number of potential etiologies. 
  • The World Health Organization recognizes nine different categories of soft tissue tumors. 
  • Within each category, these tumors are further separated into benign, intermediate (locally aggressive), and malignant types. 
  • The categories are as follows. 
  1. • Adipocytic tumors 
  2. • Fibroblastic/myofibroblastic tumors 
  3. • So-called fibrohistiocytic tumors 
  4. • Smooth muscle tumors 
  5. • Pericytic (perivascular) tumors 
  6. • Skeletal muscle tumors 
  7. • Vascular tumors 
  8. • Chondroosseous tumors 
  • Tumors of uncertain differentiation Malignant soft tissue tumors (sarcomas) are relatively uncommon, representing less than 1% of all malignancies. 
  • Soft tissue sarcomas are associated with a high mortality rate. 
  • There are over 50 different soft tissue sarcoma subtypes as defined by the World Health Organization. 
  • The most common soft tissue sarcomas in adults are liposarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, and undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma. 
  • The World Health Organization classifies neurogenic tumors and skin and appendage tumors separately from soft tissue tumors. 
  • In addition to the very large number of neoplastic causes of soft tissue masses, many soft tissue masses are nonneoplastic. 
  • These tumor-like entities are reviewed in the soft tissue tumor mimics chapters. 
  • The tumor mimics chapters are separated into infection/inflammation, vascular, crystal disease, and other causes.
