A Pilot Study of Feasibility of Performing Intravital Microscopy in Melanoma Patients

To determine the feasibility of performing intravital microscopy on accessible human melanoma tumors during their standard course of treatment (wide local excision). A successful intravital microscope observation will include our ability to identify tumor vessels, measure tumor vessel diameters, determine vessel density per 10 x field, and visualize fluorescein within the tumor vessel.
