High frequency sonography has been shown to be a useful tool in the preoperative staging of malignant melanoma. In the present study sonometric and histometric data concerning tumour thickness were compared, using appropriate statistical methods, in order to assess the accuracy of ultrasonography. From December 1997 all pigmented lesions suspected of being melanoma were preoperatively assessed by a 20 MHz ultrasound B scan. The results of these ultrasound examinations were compared with… CONTINUE READING
