Emergency Ultrasound of the Eye and Orbit was written and published to provide a basic reference to emergency physicians and ophthalmologists. While the intended audience includes emergency physicians who already are using bedside ultrasonography for the evaluation of their patients, this book includes the basics of physics and instrumentation, scanning techniques, and effects and artifacts that apply to other uses beyond ophthalmic ultrasound. This book will focus on grey scale applications of ophthalmic ultrasound that can easily be learned by those performing other non-ophthalmologic grey scale studies. A growing body of literature supports the use of ultrasound by practitioners to diagnose a variety of significant eye pathologies. This book emphasizes the use of ultrasound to evaluate emergent and urgent ophthalmologic conditions. While some chronic or non-urgent findings will be discussed, these are generally addressed in the context of differentiating these from more emergent conditions. Clearly, there are a number of vision threatening conditions for which ultrasonography can help the physician secure the appropriate and timely treatment. We submit this book as both a teaching tool and a bedside reference for emergency ophthalmic ultrasound.
