Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Versus Ultrasound Biomicroscopy for Imaging of Nonpigmented Iris Tumors – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the use of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) for imaging of nonpigmented iris tumors, through its comparison with ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM).Design: Retrospective observational case series.Methods: Consecutive patients with non-pigmented iris tumors, not extending to the ciliary body, who were concurrently evaluated with SD-OCT and UBM were included. Demographics, anterior segment clinical photographs, images obtained with SD-OCT (Cirrus HD-OCT, Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA) with 5.1.1 anterior segment software upgrade, and UBM (Humphrey Instruments, San Leandro, California, USA) were reviewed. The images produced were compared regarding the degree of anterior and posterior tumor surface resolution, internal structures, tumor (Read more...)
