MR imaging evaluation of disorders of the chest wall.

Chest wall lesions constitute a diverse group of thoracic diseases, including those of soft tissue and osseous origin. MR imaging, with its superior tissue-resolving capability and multiplanar image acquisition, is an important tool for assessing chest wall lesions. In this article, the authors review common and uncommon diseases of the chest wall, with an emphasis on the MR imaging characteristics of these diseases. Among the diseases they discuss are diseases of the soft tissue including lipoma, hibernoma, liposarcoma, hemangioma, and lymphoma. They also examine diseases of the osseous thorax, including benign osseous tumors, fibrous dysplasia, and aneurysmal bone cyst. In addition, they discuss such malignant osseous tumors as osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma.
