AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2003 Jun;180(6):1671-4. doi: 10.2214/ajr.180.6.1801671.


Objective: The purpose of our study was to summarize the CT features of pulmonary metastases in angiosarcoma in 24 patients.

Conclusion: A variety of CT features were associated with metastatic angiosarcoma of the lung. The common CT manifestations of metastatic angiosarcoma were multiple solid nodular lesions and multiple thin-walled cysts that were often accompanied by hemorrhagic change.
