by Dr. Nathaniel R. Bronson, 11 This volume serves a two-fold
purpose very nieely. For the ophthalmologist there is a
presentation of the teehniques and results of ultrasonie
examination of the eye and orbit. For the radiologist or general
ultrasonographer the essential oeular anat- omy and pathology are
deseribed with these findings. Unlike eon- ventional x-rays or
statie general body ultrasonograms, the exami- nation of the eye by
real-time ultrasonography must be done by an examiner with
extensive personal knowledge of the eye and the orbit, both
anatomieally and pathologieally. The student must realize that the
Polaroid photographs ean only show an example of what was
transiently seen, such as spot films taken during fturo- seopy.
This is further eomplieated by the poor reproduetion by Polaroid
films of the aetual gray sc ale seen during the examination.
Considerable work has been done to prepare this text. The author
has done elinieal ultrasonography of many eyes and presents the
findings of his experienee. As in most fields of medieal diagnostie
work this experienee is essential to aehieve the best results. The
beginner in ophthalmie ultrasonography is eneouraged to work with
known pathology. Fortunately, pathologie ehanges in the eye vii
FOREWORD can frequently be seen with a slit lamp or an compared our
ultrasonic diagnosis of orbital ophthalmoscope. For example, a
known retinal masses with those of the same patient done on a
detachment is an ideal case with which to start. CAT scanner.
