Foreword

When the authors proposed the realization of this book thought it might be useful for both ophthalmologists, and radiologists, and while ophthalmologists hubs tend to perform their scans, mostly other practices of ultrasound an performed only by radiologists. We intend, therefore, that this work will be useful for clinical practice and understanding of the images obtained by ultrasound, being directed to these various health professionals and to all those to whom it may concern the interpretation of ocular ultrasound. The introduction of the application of ultrasound in ocular exploration started in 1956 with the first publication of Mundt and Hughues on the usefulness of echography in the diagnosis of intraocular tumors from that time, till now, there have been several improvements, especially, since the introduction of ultrasound contact type B introduced by Bronson in 1972 then, the need to calculate the power of intraocular lenses in cataract surgery, added a new impetus with the emergence of biometrics. The latest changes in the ultrasound scan of the eye with ultrasound techniques including use of different frequencies, can sometimes confuse and complicate their proper use, we will guide the reader and provide as much information as possible. It is the intent of the authors to make an extensive review of ultrasound applied to the eye examination, and making the reader to understand that ultrasound, is helpful, especially to compare the images obtained with those achieved with other diagnostic eye as computed tomography, magnetic resonance, 18FDG-PET/CT scans, and other ophthalmic techniques as retinography or the optical coherence tomography.

Preface

The aim of the authors in this book is to explore the ultrasound of ocular globe. The echography of ocular images has been poorly known by ophthalmologist, due to the new imaging techniques such as optical coherence tomography [OCT], scanning laser and others, which have become the preference in the ocular exploration, relegating the ultrasound to cases with poor fundus visualization. The ocular echography is an excellent option to determine retinal lesions as in cases of ocular tumors. In this book, we resume the current knowledge about ocular ultrasound technique and its indications in ophthalmic pathology. Ocular echography is a basis in cases with media opacities, as when cataract or vitreous hemorrhage compare the correct vision of ocular fundus, mainly important in the preoperative cataract surgery, in order to diagnose possible retina pathologies that will affect the outcome of surgery. Furthermore the diagnosis of intraocular tumors as choroid melanoma is based on the echographic findings, as its differential diagnosis with other tumors as metastasis or hemangiomas, lectors encountered a chapter with all echographic findings for these pathologies. Currently, the introduction of Color-Doppler vascular examination, helps us in the diagnosis of ocular vasculopathies as arterial or venous occlusions, the authors dedicate a chapter to Color-Doppler ocular examinations. The most important objective of the authors is that the reader can have a global perspective of ultrasounds in ophthalmic examination, and can use this technique to ameliorate the ophthalmic patients management.
