Ocular ultrasounds are
favourite questions in the OSE. B scans pictures appear more frequently
than A scans. As there are only a few conditions that show well with a
normal ultrasound machine, a short tutorial will allow you to diagnose
most of the cases.
We begin with the principles
of ultrasound in a question and answer format followed by a discussion
of the most commonly seen (and those likely to appear in future examination)
cases in Optic and Refraction.
For a more detailed discussion
of ultrasound, the book Ophthalmic
Ultrasound: A Practical Guide by HR Atta is highly recommended.
