We performed the VOI and ADC histogram analysis for
malignant melanoma of the head and neck (MMHN) and
compared these findings with keratinizing squamous cell
carcinoma (SCC). The ADC distribution of MMHN had lower
and right shifted peak than that of SCC which reflects
lower MV, C10 and kurtosis. VOI and ADC histogram
analysis with 3T-MRI has the potential to be useful for
diagnosis of MMHN.
