- AP and lateral view of the affected bone is needed.
- An x-ray may be helpful in the diagnosis of chondrosarcoma. Findings on an x-ray suggestive of chondrosarcoma include: :
- Lytic or blastic lesion
- Intralesional calcification classicaly called as popcorn calcification.
- Endosteal scalloping affecting more than two thirds of the cortical thickness
- Moth eaten appearance or permeative appearance in higher grade tumors.
- Cortical remodeling, thickening and periosteal reaction seen in mesenchymal chondrosarcoma.
- These findings are useful in distinguishing between an enchondroma and low grade chondrosarcoma.
- De-differentiated chondrosarcomas radiographically show a lower grade chondroid lesion with superimposed highly destructive area consistent with the high grade transformed dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma.
