Editor,—Ultrasonography is useful in the diagnosis, treatment, planning, and monitoring of intraocular tumours. An important step in the diagnostic process is the differentiation between solid and cystic tumours. Uveal melanomas are usually solid but may rarely be cystic (W R Lee, personal communica...
