Abstract

The differential diagnosis of benign tumors and tumor-like lesions of the hand and wrist region is important with regard to choosing the therapy (medical versus surgical), or to decide to just follow-up the lesion. In most of the cases the proper analysis of MRI findings in correlation with the patient's history is sufficient to meet a specific diagnosis. However, diagnostic confusion is not uncommon as there are numerous lesions affecting the hand and wrist region. This pictorial essay offers a practical radiological approach to benign tumors and tumor-like lesions of the hand and wrist region based on most frequently observed MRI findings.
