B-Scan Ophthalmic Ultrasound

ADV TestBScan BWP9982 B-scan testing requires contact with the eye or eyelids.  If necessary, eyedrops that numb the cornea for a few minutes can be used during the procedure.  We use B-scan testing for several reasons, most commonly for patients with cataracts and possible retinal detachments.

B-scan opthalmic ultrasound may be reasonable and medically necessary in any of the following clinical circumstances

  • cataract
  • corneal opacity
  • diabetic retinopathy
  • optic nerve disease
  • posterior ocular inflammation
  • vitreous degeneration or detachment
  • retinal detachment
  • neoplasm of the eye
  • significant injury to the eye
