Correlation of the MRI findings with clinical assessment, intraoperative and biopsy findings: Osseous spine tumors
Dr. Jacob Jose
The annual incidence of primary spine neoplasms has been estimated at 2.5 per 1,00,000 per year.' The careful study of plain roentgenograms of spine is the first step for proper evaluation of diseases of the osseous spine. Not only the bone and joint structures of the vertebral column are important from the neurologic standpoint but also the contour and calibre of the vertebral canal and foramina of exit of the spinal nerve roots. In the case of a patient with clinical suspicion of osseous spine tumor, a complete clinical history with special reference to neurological symptoms was taken, followed by general physical examination and detailed central nervous system examination. Other systems were also examined and findings were noted. Next, the procedure for MRI was explained to the patient and consent was taken. In this study, 7 cases showed paraspinal soft tissue component. Contrast was given in all the cases. The paraspinal soft tissue component enhanced well on post contrast in all the cases.
