Multimodal Imaging of the Choroidal Melanoma, with Differential Diagnosis, Therapy (Radiation Planning) and Follow-up.

Summary of "Multimodal Imaging of the Choroidal Melanoma, with Differential Diagnosis, Therapy (Radiation Planning) and Follow-up."

Imaging of intraocular tumors is multimodal, multi-purpose, and in continuous development. Therefore, imaging is indispensable for the detection, diagnosis, therapy and monitoring of intraocular tumours. A broad spectrum of imaging procedures is available for diagnostic testing and follow-up. This includes colour image acquisition, infrared imaging, autofluorescence imaging, fluorescence and indocyanine green angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and sonography (US). In this article, the various investigations and their benefits are described using individual examples for the differential diagnosis of choroidal melanoma and retinal vascular tumours located in the fundus periphery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.

Found in large amounts in the plasma and urine of patients with malignant melanoma. It is therefore used in the diagnosis of melanoma and for the detection of postoperative metastases. Cysteinyldopa is believed to be formed by the rapid enzymatic hydrolysis of 5-S-glutathionedopa found in melanin-producing cells.

An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED). (From Lane & Sharfaei, Modern Sectional Anatomy, 1992, Preface)
