Locoregional staging of melanoma

Orlando Catalano, Christiane Voit

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Melanoma is the most aggressive type of skin cancer and has complex metastatic pathways, including local extension, regional spread to lymph nodes, and spread to distant organs. Real-time, high-resolution sonography has become the main imaging noninvasive tool used for staging and follow-up of locoregional tumor spread in patients with cutaneous melanoma. In this chapter, basic concepts on melanoma, technical considerations, use of contrast-enhanced sonography, sonographic morphology of the primary lesions and performance of locoregional staging, as well ultrasound-guided procedures for melanoma are discussed. How to perform an adequate locoregional staging
