Ultrasound A/B scan, Sonomed

  • Ultrasound dedicated for ophthalmic use.
  • Useful in identifying problems inside the eye with high accuracy when there is media opacity like dense cataract and vitreous hemorrhage which precludes examination of the back of the eye.
  • Commonly detected problems include retinal detachment
  • The A-scan is also used to measure the required power of the intraocular lens which is to be implanted during cataract surgery
