The radiographic features of a bone tumor or tumor-like lesion help in the diagnosis or narrow this same diagnostic possibilities based on the patient's history, the pattern of bone destruction, the margins of the lesion, its location, site, and placement within the skeletal structure as well as within the individual bone, and whether or not it is a single lesion or a collection of lesions. When combined with clinical data, these radiographic characteristics assist determine whether a lesion is primary or metastatic, neoplastic or benign.
