Through ultrasound it is possible to evaluate the intraocular anatomy hidden by the opaque media of the eye, differentiate orbital diseases, define the size and location of intraocular and orbital masses, their characteristics: solid, liquid, cystic, calcified, etc., quantify tumor growth and provide information on the vascularization of the orbit.
With this technology the following pathologies can be detected:
- Intraocular foreign bodies
- Vitreous hemorrhages
- Retinal detachment
- Alterations of the optic nerve and pupil
- Intraocular tumors
- Carcinomas metastases
It is a simple, non-invasive test that does not require pupil dilation and lasts approximately 15 minutes.
