Retinoblastoma and simulating lesions: role of imaging

Neuroimaging Clin N Am. 2005 Feb;15(1):49-67. doi: 10.1016/j.nic.2005.02.003.


Although the diagnosis of retinoblastoma (Rb) is made primarily by means of clinical examination, CT and MR imaging are helpful to confirm the diagnosis, determine the extent of the intraocular tumor, and exclude extraocular or intracranial involvement. They are also valuable in differentiating Rb from lesions that simulate Rb.
