Download PDF Bone tumors are best evaluated with a combination of plain radiographs and MRIs. There are various signs and rules that differentiate benign from malignant lesions and help us arrive at a specific diagnosis. One such is the concept of the “benign aggressive” lesion.

Chondroblastoma is a benign bone tumor that contains chondroblastic cells. It typically occurs in the age group of 10-25 years and 75% occur in the epiphysis of the long bones (Fig. 1). Chondroblastomas were treated in the past with curettage. Over the last 10 years, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has become a popular method for treating […]

Download PDF An osteoid osteoma is a benign bone neoplasm that occurs typically in the long bones, such as the tibia or the fibula in about 50% of cases, in the diaphyseal or meta-diaphyseal cortex (Fig. 1). It is a relatively common neoplasm, representing about 12% of all primary bone neoplasms. The typical age group is between 5 and 25 years of age (>75%) and more common in men. Patients with osteoid osteomas typically have pain, which become worse at night and which responds to anti- inflammatory drugs. Radiologically, […]

Download PDF Bronchogenic carcinomas are traditionally treated with surgery, and / or with radiotherapy / chemotherapy, depending on the stage of the lesion and the physical condition of the patient. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a relatively new technique that is used to treat tumors in different parts of the body using the principle of thermal […]

Download PDF Osteold osteomas are not uncommon in the spine and often present diagnostic difficulties. However, once an osteoid osteoma has been diagnosed in the spine, it becomes necessary to decide among the various treatment options. As in the appendicular skeleton, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a definite option for treating spinal osteoid osteomas, wherein we can introduce an […]
