Imaging features of primary sites and metastatic patterns of angiosarcoma
The purpose of this review is to describe the clinical and imaging features of primary sites and metastatic patterns of angiosarcomas utilising CT and MRI utilising MRI and CT.


Soft tissue sarcomas at a glance: clinical, histological, and MR imaging features of malignant extremity soft tissue tumors
The clinical, histological, and MR imaging features of soft tissue sarcomas according to the WHO classification are discussed and differentiating features are discussed that can help to narrow down the differential diagnosis.
Soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities: How to stay out of trouble
Clinicians must watch for signs suggestive of malignancy in soft tissue sarcoma, including large size, rapid growth, and location deep to the deep fascia, as well as local and systemic staging for prognostication and subsequent management.
Leiomyosarcoma of Somatic Soft Tissues
Patients treating with surgery and adjunctive agents seemed to live longer than their cohorts treated with surgery alone and factors that increase the death rate include size of the tumor, Musculoskeletal Tumor Society Stage of disease, and to a lesser extent particularly in the lower extremities, anatomic site.
UK guidelines for the management of soft tissue sarcomas
These guidelines are an update of the previous version published in 2010 and were intended to provide a framework for the multidisciplinary care of patients with soft tissue sarcomas, and have been updated and amended with reference to other European and US guidance.
Angiosarcoma: clinical and imaging features from head to toe.
The most important radiological findings along the spectrum of angiosarcoma from head to toe throughout the body, including uncommon and rare locations are reviewed.
Epithelioid sarcoma: clinical, MR imaging and pathologic findings
Retrospective analysis was carried out for the MR imaging characteristics and histologic findings of eight patients with pathologically proven epithelioid sarcoma and findings were correlated in each case with the patient's clinical presentation and eventual outcome.

MRI of Rhabdomyosarcoma and Other Soft-Tissue Sarcomas in Children.
The authors present the role of MRI in rhabdomyosarcoma and other soft-tissue sarcomas in children, emphasizing a multiparametric approach with focus on the utility and potential added value of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI in characterization and staging, determination of pretreatment extent, and evaluation of tumor response and recurrence after treatment.
From the archives of the AFIP: imaging of musculoskeletal liposarcoma with radiologic-pathologic correlation.
Understanding and recognition of the spectrum of appearances of the various types of musculoskeletal liposarcoma, which reflect their underlying pathologic characteristics, improves radiologic assessment and is vital for optimal patient management.
Soft-Tissue Sarcomas: Assessment of MRI Features Correlating with Histologic Grade and Patient Outcome.
MRI features including necrosis, heterogeneity, and peritumoral enhancement of soft-tissue sarcomas were associated with grade III tumors, metastasis-free survival, and overall survival.
