Abstract

Radiographic imaging is important for the full evaluation of high-risk cutaneous tumors. The correct modality should be chosen based on tumor subtype and clinical question. Locally advanced tumors may require imaging to evaluate the extent of disease, such as bony involvement, orbital infiltration, or perineural invasion. Tumors at high risk for regional and distant metastasis require imaging to identify local and distant tumor burden.
