Whole Body MRI of a Patient with Malignant Melanoma

Figure illustrates the usefulness of whole body MRI, and shows a patient with malignant melanoma and widespread metastases including the brain. WB MR Imaging shows multiple lesions outside the field of view of CT thorax and abdomen. (a) A maximum intensity projection (MIP) image of DWI shows the disease distribution in a valuable overview of the entire body. (b) Coronal STIR and (c) coronal T1-w sequences, respectively, show further anatomical details of metastatic lesions (Mosavi F. et al. 2013).
