Ophthalmic Ultrasound A Diagnostic Atlas
by Cathy DiBernardo and Ellen Greenberg
Edition: 2nd., 2007
Almost a decade has passed since the first edition of this book was published, and ophthalmic ultrasound remains an integral part of ophthalmology practices around the world. Its role continues to be in the diagnosis and management of a wide variety of ocular and orbital disorders. Understanding both diseased and healthy ocular structures, as well as mastering the prescribed examination techniques, remains an essential task for echographers, no matter what their level of expertise may be.
In this second edition, we have improved and replaced many images. We have included some images in which we used a 20-MHz probe for the posterior segment in conjunction with 10-MHz probes when it was appropriate to do so. We have expanded the anterior segment chapter to include additional ultrasound biomicroscope (UBM) images, and we have separated orbital evaluation into three chapters dealing with the
retrobulbar optic nerve, the extraocular muscles, and orbital lesions. Once again, rather than providing detailed references for each chapter, we have compiled a list of suggested reading to enhance what the reader has learned from each section.
