Abstract

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become pivotal in the practice of ophthalmology. Similar to other ophthalmic subspecialties, ophthalmic oncology has also incorporated OCT into practice. Anterior segment OCT (AS-OCT), ultra-high resolution OCT (UHR-OCT), spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT) and enhanced depth imaging OCT (EDI-OCT), have all been described to be helpful in the diagnosis, treatment planning and monitoring response of ocular and periocular tumours. Herein we discuss the role of OCT including the advantages and limitations of its use in the setting of common intraocular and adnexal tumours.
