The distinction between benign and malignant cartilaginous tumors of bone is one of the most difficult subjects in surgical pathology. The grading of chondrosarcoma also seems to vary considerably among pathologists. However, clinical management differs. The purpose of this study was (1) to investigate interobserver variability in histological diagnosis and(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was performed in 26 patients with Ewing's sarcoma of bone preceding and following neoadjuvant chemotherapy, to assess tumour response non-invasively prior to surgery. T1- and T2-weighted spin echo images were obtained. Changes including intra- and extramedullary signal intensities, tumour demarcation, tumour volume and the(More)
A uniform classification of response to chemotherapy is essential to allow comparison of local effect and ultimate prognosis between different therapy schedules. We define a histological grading system for assessment of the response to chemotherapy in Ewing's sarcoma, based on the amount and architectural pattern of residual histologically viable-appearing(More)
BACKGROUND Histological examination of bone tumors is one of the most difficult subjects in pathology. In this manuscript, correctness of initial histological diagnosis in pediatric bone tumors and tumorlike lesions was investigated. PROCEDURE All 262 bone tumor specimens of children up to the age of 19 years reviewed from 1999 to 2003 by the Netherlands(More)
 Objective. The objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of conventional radiography in predicting histopathologic response in patients with osteogenic sarcoma who were treated with preoperative chemotherapy. Design and patients. The radiographs of 22 patients with an osteogenic sarcoma, taken before and after neoadjuvant chemotherapy, were(More)
Objective. To determine whether previously described so-called malignant dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features – early start, peripheral enhancement and early plateau or washout phase – occur consistently in synovial sarcoma. Design and patients. Dynamic contrast-enhanced MR images of 10 patients with histologically proven(More)
Objective. To identify specific features of chondroblastic osteosarcoma on gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd)-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Design and patients. Nine patients with chondroblastic osteosarcoma and a control group of 20 patients with conventional central osteosarcoma were included in this study. The histopathological findings of the(More)
Enchondromas and conventional central chondrosarcomas are, respectively, benign and malignant hyaline cartilage-forming tumours that originate in the medulla of bone. In order to gain a better understanding of the molecular process underlying malignant transformation of enchondroma, and to investigate whether there is a biological difference between(More)
