Computed tomography evaluation of primary and secondary sternal neoplasms

Academic Article


  • Computed tomography characteristics of two primary sternal neoplasms (plasmacytoma and chondrosarcoma) and one metastatic tumor (malignant melanoma) are described. These cases demonstrate that computed tomography is much superior to the conventional radiography in the evaluation of sternal neoplasms. Biopsy, however, remains essential for confirmation of the nature of the tumor. © 1986.
