Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) remains a potent tool in the diagnosis and characterization of uveal lesions. In the setting of malignancy, it can confirm both placement of and response to brachytherapy. We present a case of iris melanoma with aggressive BAP-1 mutation, treated successfully with I-131 brachytherapy which was both characterized and followed with UBM and thereafter discuss the current state of these modalities.
