Osteochondroma-MRI Features


"Further Reading--Malignant transformation as the most worrisome complication occurs in approximately 1% of solitary and 5-25% of multiple osteochondromas. Magnetic resonance imaging is the most accurate method in measuring cartilage cap thickness, which represents an important criterion for differentiation of osteochondromas and exostotic (low-grade) chondrosarcomas. Cartilage cap thickness exceeding 2 cm in adults and 3 cm in children should raise the suspicion for malignant transformation."
