AbstractBackgroundDespite advances in cross-sectional imaging, chemotherapeutic dosing for isolated limb infusion (ILI) in melanoma is currently calculated through cumbersome and potentially imprecise manual measurements. The primary objective of this study was to examine the feasibility of using computed tomography (CT) to calculate limb volume, its concordance with manual measurement, and its ability to predict clinical response and toxicity in patients undergoing ILI.MethodsA retrospective… CONTINUE READING
