Radiol Clin North Am. 1998 Nov;36(6):1073-82, x. doi: 10.1016/s0033-8389(05)70232-3.


New ultrasound technologies, including three-dimensional imaging, tissue characterization, and very high frequency (50 MHz) ultrasound, have become available recently. We demonstrate how these technologies can be used alone and together to improve the use of ultrasound for diagnosis of ocular pathology.
