    Plain X-ray of the left leg
     

    Plain X-ray of the left leg, showing subcutaneous soft tissue mass lesion in the back of the leg.

     
    Area of Interest: Extremities; Oncology; Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: AIDS;

    Plain X-ray, oblique view of the left foot, showing subcutaneous soft tissue mass lesions between the phalanges and metatarsals with rounded foci of calcifications. Bones are normal.

     
    Area of Interest: Extremities; Oncology; Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: AIDS;

    Plain X-ray, AP view of the left foot, showing subcutaneous soft tissue mass lesions between the phalanges and metatarsals with rounded foci of calcifications. Bones are normal.

    Ultrasound
     

    Grey scale ultrasound of the largest foot lesion. The lesion appears heterogeneous with areas of liquefaction. The solid component reveals foci of calcifications.

     
    Area of Interest: Extremities; Oncology; Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: AIDS;

    Grey scale ultrasound of the largest foot lesion. The lesion appears heterogeneous with areas of liquefaction. The solid component reveals foci of calcifications.

     
    Area of Interest: Extremities; Oncology; Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: AIDS;

    Color coded doppler ultrasound of the largest foot lesion. The lesion reveals intense vascularity.
