Summary There have been significant advancements in the field of ophthalmic ultrasound as this imaging technology can now detect and differentiate minute lesions in a wide variety of eye disorders. With understanding of the indications for ultrasonography and proper examination techniques, one can gather a vast amount of information not possible with a clinical exam alone. Clinical Atlas of Ophthalmic Ultrasound includes a short clinical description of each case presented and supplemented with high quality, color fundus images, wide-field images, CT/MRI scans, and/or pathologic slides where applicable. Written for ophthalmologists, radiologists, echographers, and ophthalmic oncologists, this book offers more of a comprehensive clinical view on a particular disease, including multimodal imaging approach, rather than just ultrasound characteristics. Chapters covering clinical and surgical globe anatomy, vitreo-retinal disease, trauma, intraocular tumors, and optic nerve disorders are all included
