The article provides information concerning the diagnostic and treatment algorithm for soft-tissue lesions based on the concept of determinate and indeterminate categorization. The use of magnetic resonance imaging to identify soft-tissue has markedly altered the treatment algorithm for several lesions. In addition, the imaging can also be used for preoperative planning to help minimize violation and subsequent contamination of crucial neurovascular structures.
