Overview

CT scan has been the standard imaging study of retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma usually appears as an intra-ocular mass with calcification (in 80% of the cases).

CT scan

Retinoblastoma is diagnosed via indirect ophthalmoscopy. Imaging studies are usually done for these goals:[1]

  • To confirm the diagnosis in the difficult cases.
  • To assess the involvement of extra-ocular extension or associated cerebral lesion in trilateral cases.

Findings on CT scan suggestive of/diagnostic of retinoblastoma include intra-ocular mass with calcification.

However, CT scan has less sensitivity compared to MRI in the diagnosis of tumor infiltration to the nearby structures.[1][2]
