Abstract

Imaging of the hand and wrist can reveal important information in patients with hand or wrist tumors. Many imaging modalities are available, although none as important as conventional radiography. MRI is the preferred imaging modality for soft tissue lesions, whereas CT is best for osseous tumors. Scintigraphy and PET can evaluate the metabolic properties of a lesion. MRA is a useful adjunct in the evaluation of pathologic vascular anatomy. Advanced imaging studies provide enhanced diagnostic information, facilitating preoperative planning for musculoskeletal tumor surgery.
