Abstract

Ophthalmic ultrasonography is essential for documentation, measurement, and differentiation of intraocular tumors. It is a safe, noninvasive diagnostic technique providing instant images for interpretation. This chapter provides a description of instrumentation and special examination techniques necessary for the documentation and measurement of intraocular tumors. Additionally, ultrasonographic findings of common intraocular lesions including iris and ciliary body melanoma, choroidal melanoma, choroidal hemangioma, metastatic and disciform lesions, and retinoblastoma are included.
