Advances in Imaging in Ocular Oncology: A Radiologist’s Perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Recent advances in the management of intraocular tumors, particularly focused on conservative or eye-saving therapies, have redefined the role of imaging in ocular oncology. Diagnosis in ocular oncology relies mainly on the clinical appearance of the lesion and, only in some tumors, on the histological description after biopsy. Therefore, the radiologist should be able to confirm or rule out a malignant origin of the tumor mass and above all, give the ocular oncologist information on local and distant tumor spread. The purpose of this chapter is to provide an update on the current role of imaging in ocular oncology from diagnosis to functional imaging and an assessment of the treatment response in view of the current treatment strategies.
