VERDUGO P, Marco A. ULTRASOUND INTHE STUDY OF SOFT-TISSUE TUMORS. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.1, pp. 5-18. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082009000100003.

Ultrasound (US) has become a method of multiple applications in clinical and radiological practice. Over the last years, however, US has developed as a reliable and useful diagnostic method in muscle-skeletal system diseases as well as in rheumatological and traumatologic pathologies, being the sports medicine setting where it reaches an ever-increasing acceptance among clinicians. Soft-tissue tumors constitutes an area where US plays a relatively secondary role if compared with Magnetic Resonance Imaging, a more expensive technique that, when dealing with certain specific entities, may offer less accuracy in sensitivity and specificity results than those provided by US. This study was conducted to demunstrate Ultrasound abilities in the diagnosis and characterization of most frequent soft-tissue tumors.
