Abstract

Positron emission tomography (PET) combined with computed tomography (CT) has becomes an integral part of the staging, managing, and surveillance of high-risk malignant melanoma. By using PET and CT, the imaging modality offers a unique method of providing the functional and anatomical details of the disease process not previously available. The in-line acquisition of data is synergistic in providing more sensitive and specific information about malignant melanoma regardless of initial location. In addition, the functional information not only helps with the localization and extent of the disease but also may provide prognostic information by assessing the metabolic activity of the cancer.
