General Principles of Imaging

Bone imaging has undergone significant changes during the last decades. Ultrasounds, CT, MR imaging, and PET have been added to arteriography, scintigraphy, and radiographs. At the same time, survival of primary malignant tumors has improved with chemotherapy and local results with conservative surgery. Imaging plays a major role in diagnosis, local and general staging, monitoring the treatment, and detecting recurrences.
