Abstract

The lungs are the commonest site of metastasis for primary high-grade bone and soft tissue sarcoma, but current guidelines on the management of pulmonary nodules do not specifically cater for this group of patients. The current article reviews the literature from the past 20 years that has reported the CT features of pulmonary metastases in the setting of known primary bone and soft tissue sarcoma, with emphasis on osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, and trunk and extremity soft tissue sarcoma, the aim being to aid radiologists who report chest CT of musculoskeletal sarcoma patients in deciding which lesions should be considered metastatic, which lesions are indeterminate and require follow-up, and which lesions are of no concern.
