Study of B Scan Ultrasonography in Blunt Ocular Trauma in Correlation with Clinical Findings
Dr. G. Sindhura | Dr. N. Krishna 
Abstract: BACKGROUND Imaging plays a very important role in diagnosis and management of traumatic intraocular pathologies. It is a sensitive and accurate technique, which has some additional advantages over conventional radiographic technique PATIENTS AND METHODS Study was carried out on 100 patients in the Department of Ophthalmology, government general hospital, nizamabad during the period January 2017 to January 2018. Patients with history of blunt ocular trauma in all age groups of both sexes with or without opaque media are included in the study. RESULTS Males were more frequently exposed to ocular trauma. Majority of the cases were in the age group of 21 -50 years. Stick injury constitutes the major causative agent. Work place related injuries were the main cause for blunt ocular trauma. The common anterior segment clinical finding was traumatic cataract. Most common posterior segment finding on B scan USG was Vitreous Haemorrhage followed by Retinal Detachment, Posterior Vitreous Detachment, choroidal detachment, Dislocation of lens and Globe rupture. CONCLUSION B Scan USG strongly indicate that it should be first modality in evaluation of blunt ocular trauma before restoring to more costlier imaging modalities like CT, MRI.
