Giant cell tumors (GCTs) account for 4%-5% of all primary bone tumors, and radiography shows radiolucent expansile, eccentric lesions at the end of long bones. Twelve patients with primary GCTs of the bone were studied. In some cases, the complex anatomy and extent of the lesion could not be clearly depicted on conventional radiography, thus, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and digital subtraction angiography were helpful. The clinical course, radiographic findings, and differential diagnoses were discussed.
