Using optical coherence tomography for differential diagnosis of a pigmented choroidal lesion
White, Ursula, Sampson, Geoff P., Edwards, Katie P., Pritchard, Nicola, & Efron, Nathan (2011) Using optical coherence tomography for differential diagnosis of a pigmented choroidal lesion. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 94(4), pp. 385-386.
Clinicians regularly face the confronting challenge of differentiating a choroidal naevus from a melanoma. Uveal naevi are a relatively common finding during routine eye examinations: a prevalence of 6.5 per cent has been reported.1 In contrast, malignant melanomata are uncommon, being found in six persons per million population, but they can have devastating implications and consequences.2 Differential diagnoses can be difficult to make with certainty; any additional information that can assist in this process is advantageous...
