Ultrasonic M-Mode Technique in Ophthalmology

Ultrasonic M-Mode Technique in Ophthalmology Abstract The use of the M-mode or time-dependent intensity modulated ultrasound technique for ophthalmologic investigations is described. This technique provides the investigator with a means for monitoring structural changes in the eye during physiologic or pharmacologic experimental conditions, or a combination of both, and is particularly useful in studying optically inaccessible structures. The technique has been used to study accommodation changes in axial length and lens thickness as well as the rate of such changes and to study vascular pulsations and choroidal thickness changes at the rear wall of the eye.

Abstract

Abstract The use of the M-mode or time-dependent intensity modulated ultrasound technique for ophthalmologic investigations is described. This technique provides the investigator with a means for monitoring structural changes in the eye during physiologic or pharmacologic experimental conditions, or a combination of both, and is particularly useful in studying optically inaccessible structures. The technique has been used to study accommodation changes in axial length and lens thickness as well as the rate of such changes and to study vascular pulsations and choroidal thickness changes at the rear wall of the eye.
