Eye ultrasound

Eye ultrasound (ECHO B)

An ultrasound scanner is used to examine the structures of the posterior segment of the eye (vitreous humour, retina, etc.) in depth. This allows us to diagnose possible retinal detachment, vitreous humour condensation or other lesions located in the innermost parts of the eyeball.

B-EUS is exactly the same as any other type of ultrasound – for example, abdominal ultrasound – but it is performed with an ultrasound machine adapted to the dimensions of the eye. It is performed with the eyelid closed. A gel is placed on the eyelid to transmit the ultrasound from the probe and in a few minutes we obtain images of the entire eyeball.
