After gadolinium contrast administration, osteosarcomas typically show prominent enhancement in nonmineralized/calcified portions. 43) MRI: Destructive lesions involving the skull base, with low-intermediate signal on T1-weighted imaging, mixed low, intermediate, and high signal on T2-weighted imaging, + gadolinium contrast enhancement (usually heterogeneous). Malignant primitive tumor of bone composed of undifferentiated small cells with round nuclei. Accounts for 6–11% of primary malignant bone tumors, 5–7% of primary bone tumors.
Malignant mesenchymal tumors with rhabdomyoblastic differentiation that occur primarily in soft tissue, and only very rarely in bone. There are three subgroups of rhabdomyosarcoma: embryonal (50–70%), alveolar (18–45%), and pleomorphic (5–10%). Embryonal and alveolar rhabdomyosarcomas occur primarily in children < 10 years old, and pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcomas occur mostly in adults (median age in the sixth decade). Alveolar and pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcomas occur frequently in the extremities.
Zones of low signal on T2WI and T2* imaging may be seen secondary to hemosiderin. Aneurysmal bone cysts can be seen in 14% of giant cell tumors, resulting in cystic zones with variable signal and fluid–fluid levels, ± cortical destruction and extraosseous tumor extension. Aggressive tumors composed of neoplastic, ovoid, mononuclear cells and scattered multinucleated osteoclast-like giant cells (derived from fusion of marrow mononuclear cells). Can occasionally be seen associated with Paget disease in older patients.
