· Background: The presence of specific microvascularization patterns (networks, parallel with and without crosslinking, silent) in histological sections of human choroidal melanomas has prognostic significance for survival. We showed previously in selected patients that the identification of these microvascularization patterns is possible in vivo by using confocal scanning laser indocyanine green angiography and that this technique is superior to fluorescein angiography using a conventional… CONTINUE READING
