Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging is the imaging modality of choice as a conjunctive study to radiography for imaging bone tumors of the foot. However, there will be cases where computed tomography (CT) is performed, and CT is superior in evaluating the bone cortex and identifying pathological fractures, periosteal reaction, or matrix mineralization. This article reviews osseous foot neoplasms. Clinical and imaging findings are discussed, as well as applications where CT provides valuable information.
