Influence of paramagnetic melanin on the MRI contrast in melanoma: a combined high-field (11.7 T) MRI and EPR study.

Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer and its incidence is rising each year. Because the current methods of diagnosis based on the visual aspect of the tumor show limitations, several new techniques are emerging to help in this diagnosis, amongst which are magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). The origin of… CONTINUE READING
