Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) was compared with fundoscopy and ultrasound (US) in 62 patients with primary choroidal melanoma. All lesions were detected with CT and fundoscopy and all but one with US. Of 5 cases of extrascleral extension, 4 were identified with CT and fundoscopy and 2 with US. CT best depicted the extent of retrobulbar tumor. Tumor thickness was best evaluated with CT, with good correlation between CT and US. Tumor enhancement was noted in all 51 patients who had both noncontrast and contrast CT. Because of its higher density, tumor could be distinguished from retinal detachment on CT scans in most cases.
