The revised Lodwick classification can be used to assess the agressiveness of a lytic bone lesion on radiographs or CT, and therefore the probability of its malignancy.

Objective: Lodwick's well-established grading system of lytic bone lesions has been widely used in predicting growth rate for lytic bone lesions. We applied a Modified Lodwick-Madewell Grading System as an alternative means to categorize lytic bone tumors into those with low, moderate, and high risks of malignancy. Materials and methods: A retrospective review of the radiographs of bone lesions was performed.

Cases were selected to include a broad range of benign and malignant tumors. Readers applied our Modified Lodwick-Madewell Grading System, and consensus was reached in all cases.

Grading was correlated with the final diagnosis. Conclusion: By expanding Lodwick's grading system to include two additional patterns of disease described by Madewell and colleagues changing margination and radiographically occult and by reclassifying them into three distinct grades, we propose a modified system-the Modified Lodwick-Madewell Grading System.

Application of this system shows correlation of tumor grade with tumor biologic activity and with risk of malignancy: Grade I lesions are usually benign, grade II lesions carry moderate risk of malignancy, and grade III lesions possess a high likelihood of malignancy. Keywords: Lodwick; bone neoplasms; classification; grading system; radiographs; risk of malignancy. This site needs JavaScript to work properly.

A Modified Lodwick-Madewell Grading System for the Evaluation of Lytic Bone Lesions

The terms used in the description suggest the level of concern for an aggressive, and possibly malignant, process. Type 1A is usually indicative of a benign lesion with slow growth kinetics e. Treated metastases may also show a sclerotic rim, however. In the " modified Lodwick-Madewell grading system " was proposed in an attempt to better reflect the risk of malignancy in each category 4. Mixed types are possible in some scenarios for instance transformation of a benign lesion into a malignant lesion.
