Abstract

Atypical lipomatous tumors (ALTs) are characterized primarily by their location, which provides the most valuable insight towards the likelihood of complete surgical excision. MRI or CT, are invaluable tools that not only aid in a radiologic diagnosis, but are also able to precisely define location and extent of these tumors. This further aids in surgical decision-making and postoperative surveillance.
