Imaging in retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcoma

Christina Messiou, Carlo Morosi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Patients with retroperitoneal sarcoma can present to a variety of clinicians with non-specific symptoms and retroperitoneal sarcomas can be incidental findings. Failure to recognize retroperitoneal sarcomas on imaging can lead to inappropriate management in non-specialist centers. Therefore it is critical that the possibility of retroperitoneal sarcoma should be considered with prompt referral to a soft tissue sarcoma unit. This review guides clinicians through a diagnostic pathway, introduces concepts in response assessment and new imaging developments.
