BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE This study examines the value of ultrasound elastography for the examination of ocular and periocular structures. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Five patients, aged 22 to 75 years, who each had one blind eye were included. Patients underwent ultrasound elastography of their blind eye and periocular tissues using a 7-13 MHz probe. Strain grayscale and color-coded elastographic maps were recorded. In the former, a quantitative assessment of signal intensity (corresponding to… CONTINUE READING
