The aim of this study was to evaluate observer performance using T1-weighted spin-echo and fluid-sensitive MRI sequences in distinguishing between lipoma and atypical lipomatous tumour/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDL). Magnetic resonance images of 51 patients with benign lipoma and ALT/WDL of the musculoskeletal system were reviewed. There were 33 benign lipomas and 18 ALT/WDL. The character of septa and nodularity of the fatty tumours on T1-weighted spin-echo sequences and the… CONTINUE READING
