Imaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and management of spine bone tumors, since imaging features allow to understand the aggressiveness of the lesions and sometimes to characterize them. Several imaging modalities with helpful tools for differential diagnosis and planning treatment are available. This review describes the imaging features of the main benign and malignant spine tumors and correlate radiological semeiotic findings with histological features.
