Chawla et al. [29]2016Expert opinionDNoneNoneIP on CT appears as lobulated soft tissue density mass with or without any calcification. IP causes bone remodeling and resorption rather than osseous destruction (as seen in malignant tumors).CCP on MRI combined with osseous remodeling on CT are highly suggestive of IP over malignant mass.
