  • Figure 2
    CT image

    CT image shows a hypointense mass in the left Ilio-psoas muscle belly.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Localisation; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MR images
     

    FSE T1 coronal image shows well-defined mass, isointense to subcutaneous fat.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    FSE T1 axial image shows well-defined mass with prominent thin low signal bands throughout the tumour.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    In T2 TSE axial image the lesion has a high signal as subcutaneous fat.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    The lesion fails to fully suppress on fat-saturated T2-weighted axial image.
