An approach to the treatment of medium-sized choroidal melanomas combines radiation with ferromagnetic hyperthermia. The study herein discusses results with a numerical thermal model of a choroidal melanoma in the rabbit eye as treated with episcleral, thermoradiotherapy plaques. The sensitivity of a temperature–dependent blood perfusion model is investigated.
