DR. K. MSK cases has some excellent information to share with technologists!! make some time to visit this site. Below is an example:
Primary lymphoma of the bone accounts for approximately 3% of malignant bone neoplasms and comprises less than 5% of all extranodal non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas.
Diagnosis of primary bone lymphoma includes initial involvement of a single bone (most commonly a long bone)with no evidence of disease elsewhere for at least 6 months after diagnosis.
On conventional radiography, primary lymphomas of bone are characterized as “mottled” or “moth-eaten” radiolucencies, corresponding to regions of marrow and cortical replacement by lymphoma cells. Periosteal reaction has been reported in about 60% of cases. It is dark on T1, bright on T2 and enchances.
