B-scan

A B-scan is a type of ultrasound of the eye, similar to a fetal ultrasound. This is usually required to evaluate the interior eye when our view is otherwise obscured.  For example, if a person has a dense white cataract, it is impossible to detect a retinal detachment or tumor inside of the eye without this technology.
