Sunburst appearance and Codman’s triangle are the important radiological features associated with osteogenic sarcoma. Sunburst appearance is due to the aggressive involvement of the periosteum by the tumor. Codman’s triangle due to similar reasons is due to the elevation of periosteum from the cortex giving rise to a triangular appearance at this site in the radiograph.
