Ijsselstein, The Netherlands
Purpose: Not often B-scan Ultrasonography procedures are performed by non-physicians. But with the right practice, it can be done by optometrists or ophthalmic technicians. As one of them, I would like to share my experiences.
Methods: A short history of USG and examination techniques will be presented.
Conclusion: A B-scan image can be a important diagnostic tool in case of intraocular pathology such as tumors and in case of eyes that are impossible to examine by funduscopy. Some examples will be shown.
