CLINICAL CANCER OF THE
Cancer of the skin is a disease with high prevalence worldwide. Melanoma in advanced stages comes with significant morbidity and risk of mortality. However, the less dangerous non-melanoma skin cancers provide clinical areas of improvement. In a variety of clinical trials, optoacoustic imaging has shown the potential to improve cancer staging (e.g. by non-invasive assessment of Breslow depth and sentinel lymph node involvement in melanoma) and surgery planning (e.g. for Mohs surgery in basal cell carcinoma).
