Patterns of common osseous spine tumors on MRI
Dr. Jacob Jose
In the spine, where the red marrow fraction remains relatively large throughout life, marrow signal intensity will be lower than in locations where little red marrow remains (distal appendicular skeleton). This was a prospective study of 42 cases with clinical suspicion of osseous spine tumors who had undergone Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The study was conducted in theDepartment of Radiodiagnosis & Imaging. In this study, out of 9 cases of vertebral haemangiomas, four cases were between 51 — 60 years of age groups (44.4%) and 3 cases were in 41 — 50 years of age groups. (33.3%). Four cases were located in the lumbar region (44.4%) and 3 cases were in thoracic region. (33.3%) According to Fox MW et al. the peak incidence of vertebral haemangiomas is in fourth to sixth decades. The lower thoracic and lumbar regions are the most common sites for vertebral haemangiomas.
