Answer

Answer

B-scan ultrasonography can show the presence of an intraocular mass. In addition, retinal detachment may be seen. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have a low sensitivity for intraocular lymphoma and do not facilitate differentiating the diagnosis against uveitis or ocular melanoma. [30] Evaluation of patients with intraocular lymphoma includes high-resolution neuroradiologic imaging of the central nervous system (CNS) with contrast to look for lesions elsewhere.
