The authors retrospectively reviewed three cases of histologically documented osteoid osteoma in which magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was performed prior to surgical excision. In all three cases, MR imaging demonstrated abnormal signal intensity characteristics, and use of gadopentetate dimeglumine resulted in enhancement. These findings correlated with a reactive soft-tissue mass with myxomatous change, as well as with cell-depleted, juxtanidal bone marrow that contained proteinaceous… CONTINUE READING
