Modern methods in the diagnosis of uveal melanomas

Trans Ophthalmol Soc U K (1962). 1977 Sep;97(3):407-11.


Many of the difficulties in diagnosing choroidal melanomas which confronted clinicians in the past have now been eliminated. This is due to greater clinical awareness of melanomas and pseudomelanomas, as well as the use of indirect ophthalmoscopy and other ancillary tests. With further investigation, other diagnostic techniques may be developed for clinical use.
