Five spontaneous extracranial canine neoplasms studied by a computed tomography whole body scanner are presented: an undifferentiated sarcoma of the scapula, a mast cell sarcoma of the hip, a mast cell sarcoma of the neck, a fibrosarcoma of the neck, and a malignant melanoma of the gingiva. Computed tomography enables accurate detection and definition of tumor size and extent and is, therefore, an aid to diagnostic evaluation, therapy, and prognosis.
