Linear array multiple transducer ultrasonic examination of the eye

A L Susal, M W Gaynon, J T Walker
Ophthalmology 1983, 90 (3): 266-71
Dynamic ultrasonic imaging adds a time dimension to the clinical diagnosis of ocular pathology. A recent development in this area of ophthalmic sonography has been the introduction of an electronically scanned, multiple transducer system that provides improved real-time imaging of ocular tissue motion. This paper discusses clinical observations made in a variety of ophthalmic conditions with a high speed, linear array ultrasound system and discusses briefly the apparatus and special examination techniques needed to make these observations. Clinical subjects include vitreo-retinal adhesions: the clear cortical vitreous network; vitreous hemorrhage, opacities and membranes; shallow, fixed, and mobile retinal detachments; blood vessels within ocular tumors and the evaluation of intraocular foreign bodies.
