Synovial Lesions

  • V. Vasilevska NikodinovskaEmail author
  • Filip M. Vanhoenacker


This chapter will focus on imaging of those soft tissue lesions originating from the synovium or arising within the joint that are not included in the WHO Classification of Soft Tissue Tumors (2013). These lesions clinically present as a soft tissue mass and are often referred to the radiologist for further work-up of a “soft tissue tumor.” They are most often of nonneoplastic origin and have in most scenarios characteristic imaging features. Typical examples comprise of synovial cyst, ganglion cyst, and lipoma arborescens.
