Ultrasound Biomicroscopy

The use of high frequencies has greatly increased the spatial resolution of non-invasive ultrasound.

High resolution ultrasound instruments are used to visualize lesions in the anterior segment, including chamber angle, as well as the posterior pole.

Ultrasound biomicroscopy is used to produce images of anterior segment structures or subsurface lesions. This technique has proven useful in imaging conjunctival, lacrimal, and lid pathology, and in detecting and measuring anterior segment lesions.
