 Recently, textural parameters assessed in FDG-PET/CT as surrogate marker for tumor heterogeneity have been shown to provide prognostic power. Therefore, we investigated the use of such parameters in FDG-PET/CT examinations before the start of immunotherapy with vemurafenib or ipilimumab in patients with malignant melanoma.
