Abstract

Ultrasonography is a readily available, noninvasive and relatively inexpensive method in detecting a soft tissue mass and determining its size and consistency. Although it does not provide the anatomic details that CT or MR offer in the evaluation of soft tissue masses, ultrasound, nevertheless, plays an important role in the diagnostic workup of suspected soft tissue masses and remains a preferred diagnostic modality especially in evaluating an extremity mass without bony abnormality on plain radiographs. Therefore, we describe the ultrasonographic findings of soft tissue masses and correlate them with pathologic findings.
