Abstract

This chapter covers perhaps the most frequent pathologies in which ophthalmic echography is used. The cases presented here include images of vitreous tractions and hemorrhages, images of retinal detachments due to causes such as proliferative diabetic retinopathy or proliferative vitreoretinopathy, images of silicone oil–filled eyes, and images of choroidal detachments (Figs. 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, 3.11, 3.12, 3.13, 3.14, 3.15, 3.16, 3.17, 3.18, 3.19, 3.20, 3.21, 3.22, 3.23, 3.24, 3.25, 3.26, 3.27, 3.28, 3.29, 3.30, 3.31, 3.32, 3.33, 3.34, 3.35, 3.36, 3.37, 3.38 and 3.39). The emphasis is placed on a presentation of clinically variable cases so that clinical correlations can be inferred.
