Retinal oximetry is altered in eyes with choroidal melanoma but not in eyes with choroidal nevi

Source: MDLinx, November 2020

In this study, retinal vessel oxygenation in the eyes was compared with an untreated choroidal nevus or choroidal melanoma.

The noninvasive retinal oximetry (Oxymap T1) was applied to evaluate the affected and fellow eye of patients with an untreated choroidal nevus (n = 42) or choroidal melanoma (n = 45).

Researchers ascertained oxygen saturation of arterioles (ArtSat) and venules (VenSat), together with the arteriovenous difference (AV-difference).
