Most common location for a skeletal hemangioma

What is the most common location for a skeletal hemangioma?

The most common site of involvement is the spine, particularly in the thoracic segment.

Most vertebral hemangiomas are small and asymptomatic, with a coarse, vertical trabecular pattern or corduroy appearance in the vertebral body on radiographs or CT.

In addition, hemangiomas of the spine often have fat attenuation on CT, fat signal intensity on MRI, and high signal intensity on heavily T2-weighted MR images relative to skeletal muscle.
