X-Ray Appearance and Advanced Imaging Findings: The lesions can often be blastic but may also appear purely lytic, with poor margination, no matrix and cortical destruction. As seen in the images here, multiple, confluent sclerotic, blastic bony lesions are typical of metastatic breast cancer. However, purely lytic, aggressive and destructive leions also occur. Bone scan is helpful in identifying lesions that are scattered throughout the skeleton.
