Abstract

We report the color Doppler sonographic features in a case of hemangiopericytoma of the thigh in a 52-year-old woman. Color Doppler sonography demonstrated the vascularity of the tumor, and spectral analysis showed waveform changes that suggested the presence of intratumoral arteriovenous shunting. The color Doppler findings correlated well with angiographic findings. Color Doppler sonography can demonstrate intratumoral arteriovenous shunting in hemangiopericytoma and may be used to help avoid profuse bleeding when performing a preoperative biopsy.
