Introduction: The objective of this study was to retrospectively compare the difference in diagnostic accuracy of radiological and histological modalities of bone tumors. Materials and Methods: Imaging techniques such as X-ray, computerized tomography (CT) scan, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were compared with the Histological findings in 1314 patients with bone tumors. Results: Histologically, 27.4% were malignant bone tumors, whereas 72.60% were benign. The X-rays showed a diagnostic accuracy of 87.3%, with sensitivity of 81.8%, specificity of 90.0%, positive predictive value (PPV) of 79.5%, and negative predictive value (NPV) of 91.2%. CT scan presented a diagnostic accuracy of 76.08%, with 80.4%, 68.5%, 74.1%, and 78.4% of sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV, respectively. The MRI documented a diagnostic accuracy of 97.4%, sensitivity of 97.7%, specificity of 96.8%, PPV of 98.05%, and NPV of 96.4%. Conclusion: These data showed a good correlation between radiological and histological modalities.
