|The spectrum of imaging findings in primary chest wall tumors.|
Methods and materials
Tumors of the chest wall can be benign or malignant and can take origin from any of its components.
The majority of malignant chest wall tumors are metastatic lesions from other organs or they are the result of direct invasion of a tumor from the lung parenchyma.
Radiographic tools for imaging these lesions consist mainly of plain radiographs, CT, and MRI. Radiologic evaluation of these tumors is essential in determining resectability and planning reconstruction.
