This chapter first discusses general principles of tumor imaging, including both characteristics of benign and malignant tumors and utility of different imaging modalities.

It concludes with a review of osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma, the more common malignant tumors, as well as chondrosarcoma, lymphoma, malignant fi brous histiocytoma, and metastatic disease.
