Diagnostic procedures for osteoid osteoma are used to determine the exact type of tumor your child has and whether the tumor has spread. These may include:
• physical exam, including neurologic function tests of reflexes, muscle
strength, eye and mouth movement, coordination and alertness
• x-rays to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs
• magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to produce detailed images of organs
• computerized tomography scan (also called a CT or CAT scan) to capture a detailed view of the body biopsy or
tissue sample from the tumor to provide definitive information about the type of tumor
• a bone scan to detect bone diseases and tumors as well as to determine the cause of bone pain or inflammation
• a complete blood count (CBC), which measures size, number and maturity of different blood cells in a specific
volume of blood
• blood tests
