In 31 patients with 21 soft tissue and 10 bone tumors, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) were equally effective in delineating the margins of most soft tissue tumors, and the margins of bone tumors from fat and adjacent normal bone. However, MRI was superior to CT in delineating bone tumors from adjacent muscle, and in showing the relationships to bone of the deep margins of some soft tissue tumors. This was true because the quality of CT images around thick cortical bone often was severely degraded by streak artifact, which does not occur in MRI. Excellent anatomic detail was achieved on MRI by spin echo pulse sequences with short repetition times. Bone tumors were delineated best by spin echo 1000/30 images, and soft tissue tumors by spin echo 1000/30 or inversion recovery images.
