Radial video mosaicing may aid in mapping lentigo maligna

October 23, 2017

Handheld reflectance confocal microscopy with radial video mosaicing showed utility in mapping lentigo maligna and lentigo maligna melanoma.

The prospective trial included patients with biopsy-proven lentigo maligna and lentigo maligna melanoma of the head and neck who were seeking consultation for possible surgical intervention at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center between March 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017. Thirty-two patients underwent handheld reflectance confocal microscopy with radial video mosaicing and 22 patients with 23 lesions were treated with a staged surgical intervention.
