Intraoperative use of ultrasound to document proper plaque placement in treating choroidal melanoma
Echography has been used to document proper radioactive plaque placement in the treatment of ocular melanomas. We have used echography to help diagnose and compute dimensions of intraocular tumors. In addition to accurate height measurement, we have used contact B-scan echography to help establish or confirm the basal diameter of tumors. We will discuss our methods of using intraoperative contact B-scan echography to ensure proper placement of iodine-125 plaques.
