16. 12. 2016

Meeting on the diagnostic dilemmas in the treatment of melanoma organized by the Section for Radiological Diagnostics of the Serbian Medical Society and the Institute of Radiology, Military Medical Academy was held at the Military Medical Academy.
The introductory lecture on modern diagnostics of melanoma was delivered by the Head of Clinic for Dermatology and Venereal Diseases MMA Prof. Dr. Lidija Kandolf Sekulovic. Participants were introduced to the history and advances in diagnostics and treatment of melanoma. As mentioned, this malignancy with 500 new cases per year in our country, depending on the level of classification required numerous radiological procedures, from ultrasonography as a preparation for biopsy of the Sentinel node to computed tomography in order to detect metastatic changes. Also, the multidisciplinary way of the treatment in accordance with European guidelines, an individual approach to each patient as well as a presence of a specialist in radiology in an advisory team for melanoma were pointed out.
Radiological procedures and regional manifestations of metastatic disease were discussed in the second part of the meeting. MMA’s radiologists Prof. Dr. Dara Stefanovic, Lt Col. Assist. Dr. Dejan Kostic and Major Dr. Ivan Zenilo presented most often observed changes in the body of patients showing numerous examples from the clinical practice of the Institute of Radiology MMA. The lectures were dedicated to the characteristics of metastatic changes, from targeted lymph nodes examined through the chest, gastrointestinal tract to neurosurgical changes, etc., which often can be atypical, and are particularly important in situations when melanoma is not primary treated disease.
