Tumor Site - macroscopic examination/transillumination (select all that apply)
Tumor Size After Sectioning - Greatest basal diameter (mm)
Tumor Size After Sectioning - Greatest thickness (mm)
Iris melanomas originate from, and are predominantly located in, this region of the uvea.
If less than half the tumor volume is located within the iris, the tumor may have originated in
ciliary body, and consideration should be given to classifying it accordingly.
Ciliary Body and Uveal tumors
1. Primary ciliary body and choroidal melanomas are classified according to the four
tumor size categories defined in Figure 3 (see below).
2. In clinical practice, the largest tumor basal diameter may be estimated in optic disc
diameters (DD; average: 1 DD = 1.5 mm), and tumor thickness may be estimated in diopters
(average: 2.5 diopters = 1 mm). Ultrasonography and fundus photography are used to
provide more accurate measurements.
3. When histopathologic measurements are recorded after fixation, tumor diameter and
thickness may be underestimated because of tissue shrinkage
