  19. 19. 3/15/2013 19
  20. 20. Medical Ultrasound frequencies • Abdominal US − 1-5 MHz • Ophthalmic US (B-scan) − 8-10 MHz • Ultrasound Biomicroscopy (UBM) − 20-50 MHz3/15/2013 20
  21. 21. Ophthalmic US • B-scan − 10 MHz − 40 mm − 940 microns • UBM − 50 MHz − 5-10 mm − 40 microns3/15/2013 21
  22. 22. Principles of US • Velocity • Reflectivity • Angle of incidence • Absorption3/15/2013 22
  23. 23. Velocity• Depends upon density of medium• Distance = speed x time − Thru air − Thru aqueous & vitreous • 330 m/s • 1532 m/s − Thru water − Thru cornea & lens • 1500 m/s • 1641 m/s − Thru metal − Thru silicon oil…1000 CS • 5000 m/s • 980 m/s − Thru blood − Thru silicon oil…5000 CS • 1570 m/s • 1040 m/s 3/15/2013 23
  24. 24. Reflectivity (Echo) • Follows law of Acoustic impedance • A.I. = sound velocity x density of medium Medium Acoustic impedance (x106) kgm-2 s-1 Fat 1.38 Human tissue 1.63 Blood 1.61 Muscle 1.70 Bone 5.6-7.8 Vitreous 1.52 Aqueous 1.50 Lens 1.84 243/15/2013
  25. 25. • Higher gain for weaker echoes • Low gain for stronger echoes3/15/2013 25
  26. 26. Angle of incidence Transducer3/15/2013 26
  27. 27. Absorption • Dependent on density of medium • Closed lids should be therefore avoided but in children or open wound • Shadowing occurs bcz of it3/15/2013 27
  28. 28. Probe positioning • Trans-ocular approach − Transverse − Longitudinal − Axial • Para-ocular approach3/15/2013 28
  29. 29. Trans-ocular Transverse position − Most commonly used position − Shows about 6 clock hours − Used for basic screening − Detects lateral extent of pathology − Probe is placed opposite to the examined meridian3/15/2013 29
  30. 30. − Probe marker is tangential to limbus − Mark is at nasal side when scanning 6 and 12 o’clock − For the rest…marker is superior − Limbus-to-fornix approach is used to detect from posterior pole to periphery Nasal3/15/2013 Bridge 30
  31. 31. Longitudinal positions − Detects axial (AP) extent of pathology − Useful for retinal tears detection − Shows only 1 clock hour scan3/15/2013 31
  32. 32. − Probe mark is perpendicular to limbus − Pt looks towards the area of interest − Optic nerve shadow is always at bottom of scan − Limbus-to-fornix approach can be used3/15/2013 32
  33. 33. Axial positions • Probe direct over the cornea • Pt looks in primary gaze • US waves pass thru center of lens and hit optic nerve rather than macula • Lens density affects the quality of image3/15/2013 33
  34. 34. Positions of axial scan • Horizontal − Marker always nasal • Vertical − Marker always superior • Oblique − Marker always superior Nasal Bridge3/15/2013 34
  35. 35. Basic screening technique • Done for screening purpose in opaque media • Highest gain settings are used so weaker signals shouldn’t be missed • Any pathology found…further scanning is required3/15/2013 35
  36. 36. Technique • 05 scans in different positions will detect gross pathology • Transverse position with limbus-to-fornix approach in… − 12, 3, 6 and 9 oclock • Horizontal axial scan…shows optic nerve & macula in one image • Print out of each position is taken with labels3/15/2013 36
  37. 37. If pathology found… • Clock hour noted on transverse scan • Patient is asked to look in the direction of pathology • Probe should be perpendicular • Longitudinal scan, A-scan & change of gains…adds further info of pathology3/15/2013 37
  38. 38. Localization of macula • 04 positions for macular detection − Horizontal axial − Vertical axial − Transverse…probe placed nasally − Longitudinal…probe placed nasally3/15/2013 38
  39. 39. Anterior segment evaluation Immersion technique High resolution technique3/15/2013 39
  40. 40. Immersion technique • Cornea, anterior chamber & lens create noise bcz of close contact with probe • Shell or water bath is used to create space3/15/2013 40
  41. 41. High resolution technique • Ultrasound biomicroscopy • High resolution probes are used • Scleral shell technique is used • Image quality far superior to immersion technique3/15/2013 41

  43. 43. Common examples Vitreoretinal disorders • Most common indication for B-scan − Vitreous hemorrhage − Retinal detachment − Intraocular tumors − Intraocular foreign bodies3/15/2013 43
  44. 44. Vitreous hemorrhage • Fresh: − Dot-like…Echolucent or low reflectivity • Old: − Membrane-like…varying reflectivity & dense inferiorly3/15/2013 44
  45. 45. Fresh VH Old VH3/15/2013 45
  46. 46. 3/15/2013 46
  47. 47. Retinal detachment • Rhegmatogenous R/D: − Thin, continuous membrane anteriorly separated from globe wall − Echoes are of high amplitue-100% of scleral spike − Retinal cysts, subretinal hemorrhages may be seen3/15/2013 47
  48. 48. 3/15/2013 48
  49. 49. • Tractional R/D: − Traction membranes are seen − R/D usually doesn’t extend to ora serrata − Lower mobility in contrast to Rheg. R/D3/15/2013 49

  52. 52. • Exudative R/D: − Smooth elevation of retina − Shifting fluid3/15/2013 52
  53. 53. Supine position Erect position3/15/2013 53
  54. 54. Intraocular tumors • Retinoblastoma: − Single or multiple mass lesions arising from retina − Highly refractile calcium seeding in vitreous +/- orbital shadowing − R/D may be found3/15/2013 54
  55. 55. 3/15/2013 55
  56. 56. • Choroidal melanoma: − Solid Dome shaped or mushroom shape − High surface reflectivity with low to medium internal reflectivity − A scan flickering spikes…internal blood flow − Choroidal excavation − Exudative R/D may be present3/15/2013 56
  57. 57. 3/15/2013 Dome shape 57
  58. 58. Collar stud shape Arrowhead in A scan shows bruch’s membrane3/15/2013 58
  59. 59. Intraocular foreign body • Echodense signals with shadowing • Persistence of signals at low gains • Glass…reverberations • Air bubble…may simulate IOFB3/15/2013 59
  60. 60. 3/15/2013 60
  61. 61. Dislocated lens • Signals depend on clarity of lens • Clear lens…Echolucent globular structure • Brunescent lens…highly reflective with shadowing3/15/2013 61

  64. 64. A-Scan3/15/2013 64
  65. 65. A - scan • Amplitude scan • 10 MHz probe • Measures axial length of eye and used for diagnostic purposes when combined with B-scan • Follows law of acoustic impedance3/15/2013 65
  66. 66. • X-axis…time • Y-axis…amplitude • Method − Applanation technique − Immersion technique3/15/2013 66
  67. 67. A-scan by Applanation• Cornea is anesthetized• Patients should look directly at the red fixation light• Probe placed directly on cornea• This causes a slight indentation (0.14 - 0.28 mm)
  68. 68. • Measurements vary slightly from each other due to inconsistent corneal compression • Also, will have a shallower AC depth than immersion • Takes (20) readings3/15/2013 68
  69. 69. • At least (4) of these should be within 0.02 mm of each other, and should look like the previous slide• This way the measurements will be made to the center of the macula, giving the refractive axial length, rather than anatomical axial length

  73. 73. A- Scan facts• Average length of the eye: 23.5mm• Average A/C depth: 3.24mm (but can vary greatly)• Average lens thickness: 4.63mm ( but can vary with cataractous changes up to as thick as 7.0mm in density)• Average K’s : 43.00 – 44.00D
  74. 74. Summary • Ophthalmic US…high frequency • A & B scans mostly used • Different pathologies can be diagnosed easily when both scans are used simultaneously3/15/2013 74
  75. 75. Take home message • Understanding of basic physics • Proper standardized technique should be applied in each case • ‘Eyes do not see what mind does not know’ • So background knowledge of pathologies and experience count the yield of US3/15/2013 75
