Multi voxel and single voxel spectroscopy were performed on patients with soft tissue tumor to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions and to detect the recurrence/residual tumor based on choline delectability criteria. In eighteen histopathologically proven malignant lesions choline resonance was observed while in four benign lesions including low grade liposarcoma, choline could not be detected. Our study proved that MR Spectroscopy can be used as a reliable tool in differentiating benign and malignant lesions with 100% sensitivity and 100% specificity
