Purpose: To evaluate the utility of wide angle fluorescein angiography with the Optos Panoramic200ATM Imaging System in choroidal lesions in an Oncology Practice Methods: The Optos Panoramic200ATM was used to simultaneously image the posterior pole and retinal periphery angiographically in lesions which could masquerade as choroidal melanoma. Conditions included choroidal nevus, congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium, disciform degeneration and choroidal melanoma. Results: High resolution, clinically useful macular and retinal peripheral images were acquired in all eyes studied. Clinically meaningful peripheral angiographic findings upon which treatment decisions were based were observed in a number of cases. Conclusions: The Optos Panoramic200ATM Ultrawidefield Angiography System exceeded expectations in terms of image quality and peripheral angiographic data. In the relatively few patients studied clinically meaningful data were obtained. This panoramic angiographic system may become an important diagnostic option in the evaluation and treatment of ocular oncology pathology.
