This book aims to cover all aspects of intraocular tumors. The chapters explain diagnosis and treatment plan in detail with the aid of step-by-step descriptions in the form of flow charts. An additional chapter covers imaging modalities that help in diagnosing these conditions. The book is written by subject experts from all over the world. Written by world-renowned authorities in ocular oncology at the Wills Eye Institute, this text/atlas is a comprehensive pictorial and textual guide to the clinical features, pathology, diagnosis, and management of intraocular tumors and pseudotumors. It features 2, photographs and surgical drawings—2, in full color—that depict the clinical variations, histopathologic characteristics. What are ocular tumours? Ocular tumours can appear on the eyelids, in the eye (conjunctiva, choroid or retina) and in the orbit (the cavity that houses the eyeball). Given their delicate location, early diagnosis and treatment is necessary. Time is of the essence to save vision, the eye and even the life of the patient in the most serious cases. This unsurpassed, two-volume ocular oncology resource is a comprehensive guide to the clinical features, diagnosis, management, and pathology of eyelid, conjunctival, and orbital tumors, as well as intraocular tumors and pseudotumors, depicting clinical variations, histopathologic characteristics, and treatment of the wide spectrum of benign.

Intraocular melanoma is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the eye. Intraocular melanoma begins in the middle of three layers of the wall of the eye. The outer layer includes the white sclera (the "white of the eye") and the clear cornea at the front of the eye. The inner layer has a lining of nerve tissue, called the retina, which senses light and sends images. Radiotherapy of Intraocular and Orbital Tumors presents a new approach to the role of radiation therapy in the management of ophthalmic cancer. The indications for ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging studies are analyzed, and treatment techniques, together with their results, are described for each tumor.4/5(1). The focus of the book is to be a ready reference for recognition of various intraocular tumors and related conditions. A slide collection of cases is used to achieve this goal. A concise description of both the rare and the common tumors with clinical presentation, clinical examination, histopathology, and references is .
In the evaluation of intraocular and ocular surface tumours, the ocular oncologist is reliant on multimodality imaging techniques, including color photography, fluorescein (FFA) and indocyanine green (ICG) angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), ultrasound and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM).Author: David Sia, Rana’a T.
