Abstract

While uncomplicated cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer can be treated with surgery, destruction, or topical therapy alone, advanced or neglected cases require more complex management decisions. Dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons should be familiar with the imaging techniques relevant to cutaneous oncology and their value in different clinical scenarios. Herein we review imaging modalities used in management of nonmelanoma skin cancer.
