Answer: Temodar is FDA approved for brain cancer but not sarcomas, although it has shown some potential/promise for that and other cancers. There are various trials ongoing, but I have not yet found any for soft tissue sarcomas. If I do, I will reply back with information.
Answer: If you are asking what is used for imaging of soft tissues in joints; an MRI (MRT, KST, ...)At this point, MRI (preferably 3T MRI) is the best. Ultrasounds can also be used (for example for rotator cuff evaluation), or sometimes an arthro-CT (normal CT is not that good).A diagnostic arthroscopy is a possiblity, but I suppose that no longer falls under "imaging".Plain x-rays will not show soft tissues (well, they will, but very vague).
Answer: Mesenteric and omental soft tissue nodules could have a number of causes, usually metastatic cancer. In a patient with a known soft tissue sarcoma elsewhere in the body, this finding would likely represent metastases from this sarcoma. If the patient did not have a history of soft tissue sarcoma, this finding could be several things, and soft tissue sarcome would not be at the top of my list.
Answer: i am a radiologist. in our reports, we must give an indication that we indeed looked at and evaluated everything seen on the image(s). this is done for completeness as well as billing purposes. when we say that the soft tissues are unremarkable, it means 1) we looked at the soft tissues (i.e. things other than the bones on an x-ray) and that 2) they are normal (i.e. no masses, abnormal features, swelling, etc.). so, when we say that the soft tissues are unremarkable that is a good thing. hope this helps.
Answer: The entire body, aside from the bones, is considered "Soft Tissue." The answer to this question will be location-specific. To know what soft tissues are "underlying" an area, we need to know what area we are talking about. The term underlying just means, "deeper inside the body." So, underlying the skin is the surface fascia (aka connective tissue), the capillary beds, and so forth. Underlying the abdominal muscle wall is the abdominal cavity, filled with the organs of digestion and elimination, etc. So "underlying soft tissue" means whatever organs or structures are present deeper inside the body at that location. The underlying soft tissues of your arm include the biceps and triceps muscles, and the blood vessels and nerves supplying energy to them, etc. The underlying soft tissues of your head include the tongue, the eyes, the brain, the glands, the jaw muscles, etc.
