PURPOSE To evaluate whether the different signal intensities at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of melanoma are associated with a higher content of melanin. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective study, MR imaging and ophthalmoscopic examination findings in 42 patients (19 women, 23 men; age range, 30-87 years) with uveal melanoma were compared with histopathologic examination findings obtained after enucleation. MR imaging was performed with 2-mm sections by using a 5-cm surface coil. T1… CONTINUE READING
