Article Title: Molecular imaging and therapy of merkel cell carcinoma
Abstract: Several molecular imaging modalities have been evaluated in the management of Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), a rare and aggressive tumor with a high tendency to metastasize. Continuous progress in the field of molecular imaging might improve management in these patients. The authors review the current modalities and their impact on MCC in this brief review article. © 2014 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.
