Automated digital volume measurement of melanoma metastases in sentinel nodes predicts disease recurrence and survival

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Total metastatic volume (TMV) is an important prognostic factor in melanoma sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) that avoids both the interobserver variation and unidirectional upstaging seen when using semi-quantitative size estimates. However, it is somewhat laborious for routine application. Our aim was to investigate whether digital image analysis can estimate TMV accurately in melanoma SLNs.
