Dr Sonali Mhaske Kadam, Dr Shivrudra Gangshetty

Abstract


INTRODUCTION:B-mode, a real time scan, provides excellent details of various ocular structures. It gives the exact site, extent and characteristics of ocular lesions. Use of ultrasonic waves in diagnostic radiology has radically transformed the approach towards the imaging of the orbit.                                                                                                   

MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was carried out in the Department of Radiodiagnosis and Imaging in MGM Medical College and Hospital, Kamothe, Navi Mumbai. In the present study,50 patients irrespective of age and sex suspected to have ocular pathologies were selected.

RESULTS:In the present study out of 50 patients,42 had intraocular pathologies (84%)-common observed abnormality was retinal detachment(16%) followed by cataract(10%),posterior vitreous detachment(8%),vitreous hemorrhage(8%) & 8 had Extraocular pathologies(16%),which were not included in the study.

CONCLUSION:B-scan could diagnose the intra ocular lesions accurately and act as definitive diagnostic modality without confirmation required by CT and MR.
