Summary A number of benign bone tumours can be treated with curettage and packing with either bone cement or graft. It is essential that the radiologist be familiar with both the normal and abnormal post-operative imaging appearance of these treated tumours. Through the use of numerous imaging examples, we aim to provide a pictorial review of the expected post-operative appearance of benign bone tumours treated with curettage and packing, as well as the imaging features of recurrence, the most common potential complication.
