Bone lesions are frequently encountered in small animal clinical practice and plain radiography is vital to characterize bone lesions for quick assessment and further management of the case. The characterization primarily involves the identification of roentgen signs (radiographic features) that can be utilized to distinguish between aggressive and non-aggressive/benign bone lesions. In this minireview, a clinical case of feline chondrosarcoma, a rare feline primary bone neoplasia is presented to review the radiographic characterization of bone lesions and the significance of plain radiography in small animal practice.
