Lung metastases from sarcoma
Lung metastases from sarcoma

The oncologist will want to know if the tumour is confined to bone, whether it has spread outside the bone into the surrounding muscles (best assessed on MRI of the area) or whether it has spread further afield. With respect to distant spread, most sarcomas spread to the lungs first, which is best assessed by CT scanning of the chest. Thereafter, it spreads to other bones and other sites.
