ENHANCED DEPTH IMAGING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY OF INTRAOCULAR TUMORS: From Placid to Seasick to Rock and Rolling Topography-The 2013 Francesco Orzalesi Lecture.
Purpose: To review enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography of intraocular tumors.
Methods: Review of tumor surface topography and internal characteristics based on published reports and personal experience.
Results: Using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography, choroidal nevus showed smooth moderate dome-shape and with overlying retinal pigment epithelial alterations, subretinal cleft, and photoreceptor loss. Choroidal melanoma was smooth, moderately dome-shaped, and with overlying "shaggy" photoreceptors. Choroidal metastasis showed "lumpy, bumpy" irregular surface topography, subretinal fluid, and shaggy photoreceptors. Choroidal hemangioma was smooth, acutely dome-shaped and with subretinal fluid and/or cystoid retinal edema. Choroidal lymphoma showed "placid, rippled, or seasick ...
