Nuclear Medicine in the Diagnosis of Skin Tumors

  • H. J. Biersack
Conference paper

Abstract

Nuclear medicine offers a variety of diagnostic tools for the evaluation of skin tumors which include the radioactive phosphorus (32P) uptake test, tumor imaging with 67Ga, 201Tl, and immunoscintigraphy with radiolabeled antibodies. These procedures and their results are briefly described in this paper.
