Abstract

Malignant melanoma is the primary cause of morbidity among skin cancers patients. The positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) study is one of the most used methods of imaging in oncology. It is also considered useful in malignant melanoma staging, restaging, and therapy planning.
