Inflammatory lesions such as myositis ossificans appear hypervascular, thereby being easily mistaken for malignancy [50]. Angiography currently has little role in the diagnosis and staging of most soft tissue tumors. Decreased vascularity is considered a good indicator of tumor response to therapy [10]. It is difficult to justify angiography for this purpose because of its cost and invasiveness. Digital vascular imaging has improved image quality and reduced the radiation dose and contrast-medium load to the patient, but has not fundamentally altered the role of angiography in this patient group.

The use of color Doppler US (CDUS) as an additional means of describing the biological activity, structure, and extension of bone and soft tissue tumors and the blood supply to them has been described only incidentally.
