This paper presents the results of sonographic and radiographic examinations in 48 patients clinically diagnosed as having bone tumors. Sonography revealed bone destruction in all 48 cases, elevated periosteum in 26 cases and soft tissue mass in 34 cases. The results obtained in this series demonstrate that most bone tumors have their characteristic sonographic features such as giant cell tumors, malignant bone tumors, bone cysts, as well as metastatic lesions. Study showed that sonography has equally high accuracy in the diagnosis of these tumors compared with radiography.
