Choroidal metastases were first reported by Perls in 1872. The choroid is the most common ocular site for metastatic disease due to the abundant blood supply. Bilateral lesions are commonly associated with breast carcinoma (40–47%) and unilateral with lung (21–29%). Treatment frequently depends on the patient status but includes observation, systemic chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, radiotherapy, plaque therapy, or photodynamic therapy.

We compared the accuracy of AVS and PET-CT in identifying patients with unilateral surgically-curable PA.MethodsIn this prospective multi-centre cl...
