B Scan

B-scan ultrasonography is an effective and noninvasive tool used to diagnose conditions affecting the back of the eye. Common conditions such as cataracts, vitreous degeneration, retinal detachment, ocular trauma, choroidal melanoma, and retinoblastoma can all be accurately detected and analyzed with this modality.

Preparation for Bscan

B-scan is a quick and easy test that doesn't require any prior preparation or pupillary dilation.     B-scan ultrasound is a diagnostic tool that uses high-frequency soundwaves to create an image of the eye. The soundwaves are transmitted from a probe or transducer into the eye, and the image is then displayed on a screen.

What conditions can BScan (Ocular Ultrasound) help diagnose?

An eye ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure that uses sound waves to create a picture of the inside of your eye. This test is used when your doctor suspects you have a problem with your retina, the layer of nerve tissue in the back of your eye that senses light and sends images to your brain. The ultrasound can also be used to check for cataracts, retinal detachment, and other disorders.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is BScan (Ocular Ultrasound)?
B scan ultrasonography is a diagnostic tool used when the view of the posterior segment of the eye is obstructed. The posterior segment consists of the vitreous, retina, optic nerve, and choroid.
What is the principle of B-scan?
The principle behind B-scan ultrasound is that high-frequency sound waves are transmitted from a probe or transducer into the eye. As these soundwaves strike the intraocular structures, an echo is reflected back to the probe and converted into an electrical signal. This signal is then reconstructed into a two-dimensional image on a monitor.
What can an ultrasound of the eye detect?
An eye ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure that can be used to detect abnormalities in the eye. The ultrasound helps evaluate the farthest part of the eyeball, which can be useful when there are cataracts. The test may also help diagnose retinal detachment or other disorders in the eye, as well as disorders and lesions behind the eye.
Is dialtion required for Bscan?
Pupil dilation is not always required in order to get a clear image of the eye. In fact, five maneuvers are all that's needed in order to examine the entire globe. Ultrasound images can be obtained by simply having the patient close their eyelids or by placing the probe on the surface of the eye with topical anesthetic - both of which produce detailed images of not just the eye, but also the orbit.
How much does Bscan (Ocular Ultrasound) test cost?
It will cost you 8000 PKR.
