Role of high-resolution ultrasound and PET/CT imaging for preoperative characterization of sentinel lymph nodes in cutaneous melanoma.

Abstract

The purpose of our study was the comparison of high-resolution ultrasound (HRUS) and positron emission tomography combined with computerised tomography (PET/CT) in the preoperative characterization and identification of subclinical nodal metastases focusing on sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) in melanoma patients. Patients with cutaneous melanoma (CM) who… (More)
