BACKGROUND PET/CT has proven extremely useful in the management of melanoma patients, with great sensitivity (Se), but it tends to give false-positive results. Whole-body MRI (wb-MRI) is a new method that has made considerable progress. STUDY AIMS The aim of this study was to assess the Se and specificity (Sp) of wb-MRI with a diffusion sequence for… CONTINUE READING
