About the Course Series
This full day didactic course series covers critical concepts to the understanding and performance of ophthalmic ultrasound. Topics include physics and principles of ophthalmic ultrasound, B-scan ultrasound methodology with emphasis on standardized probe positioning & labeling, techniques and indications for ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and diagnostic Ascan, pediatric ultrasound techniques, recognition & identification of common disease processes & disorders of the globe and descriptive interpretation of ultrasound findings.
A one-hour instructor-guided workshop allows attendees to practice the scanning techniques and probe positioning taught throughout the day. Emphasis will be placed on the open eye exam and understanding how the probe position and scan direction relate to the area of globe being examined.
By the end of this ultrasound course, attendees will be able to:
- understand the role and effects physics plays on ocular ultrasound
- visualize and apply 3-dimensional thinking when locating pathology within the eye
- learn standardized ultrasound probe handling and positioning
- understand the applications for various ultrasound modalities (B-scan, UBM, Diagnostic Ascan)
- recognize the range and diversity of pathology seen with ultrasound
- learn how to accurately describe and interpret ultrasound findings to enhance the clinical assessment
