Head and eye Echoencephalogram

Overview

An echoencephalogram is a diagnostic procedure which uses ultrasound to test for abnormalities in the eye. The ultrasound helps evaluate the farthest part of the eyeball when there are cataracts. The test may help diagnose retinal detachment or other disorders and evaluate orbital lesions and intraocular lesions.
