      MR differentiation of low-grade chondrosarcoma from enchondroma.
      ] revealing differentiation of low-grade chondrosarcoma from enchondroma using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Authors revealed that some features on MRI could be helpful in differentiating low-grade chondrosarcoma from enchondroma. In our opinion, some points about MRI scanning protocol, and MRI findings of lesions in this article are not sufficiently clear.
