Abstract

Color Doppler imaging (CDI) allows simultaneous two-dimensional high-resolution imaging of ocular structure and accurate, color-coded blood flow in small vessels. The role of CDI in detecting tumor neovascularization, tumor vascular supply and degree of intratumoral blood flow is still a matter of controversy. Nine patients with suspected unilateral uveal melanoma were examined by CDI, and CDI findings were compared with histopathologic analysis after enucleation. CDI was found to be a useful, supplementary noninvasive method for diagnosing uveal melanoma and follow-up of patients during irradiation therapy.
