  Chest Wall Tumors: Radiologic Findings and Pathologic Correlation  introduction ã  Primary malignant chest wall tumors typically manifest as large, palpable, rapidly growing masses ã  Chest wall pain is a common symptom, and most patients with malignant chest wall tumors are symptomatic, unlike patients with benign chest wall tumors ã  Malignant chest wall tumors are classifi ed into eight main diagnostic categories: muscular, vascular, fi brous and fibrohistiocytic, peripheral nerve, osseous and cartilaginous, adipose, hematologic, and cutaneous  ã  Although the imaging features of many malignant chest wall tumors are nonspecific, knowledge of the typical radiologic manifestations of these tumors often enables their differentiation from benign chest wall tumors and occasionally allows a specific diagnosis to be suggested.  Imaging Techniques and Findings: An Overview ã  Chest radiography often is performed at initial evaluation of a clinically suspected malignant chest wall tumor ã  Computed tomography (CT) is more sensitive than chest radiography for detecting calcified tumor matrix and cortical destruction ã  magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, which has a multiplanar capability and offers superior spatial resolution, can provide additional information regarding the extent of the tumor, as well as tissue characterization
