The purpose is to compare and evaluate multiple functional imaging methods (perfusion,
diffusion, spectroscopy) for initial benign/malignant characterization of osteoarticular
tumors and to determine which method or which association of methods could improve non
invasive tissue characterization.
Secondary purposes are:
- to determine a possible correlation between some parameters and the histological grade
- to suggest a coherent diagnostic imaging approach for osteoarticular tumors.
The ancillary study will enroll patients needing radiological tumor follow-up. The purpose is
to identify tools for evaluation of tumor activity and therapeutic response before
modification of morpho-volumetric data.
