picture of the day: retinal detachment on ocular ultrasound

4 Mar

keeping it simple today.  EMN has a nice article to go with the picture.

 

cool tip from the article:

–“asking the patient to look right & left will cause the membrane to ‘wave’ or undulate to confirm its presence.”

 

retinal detachment:

normal:

add that to your mental Rolodex (or look it up here in a pinch).
