A key foundation for accurate diagnosis
Ultrasonography’s unique imaging capability ensures that it continues to be a critically important diagnostic tool in ophthalmology. It’s the only method that can obtain an optimal view of the posterior segment when there is a dense cataract or vitreous hemorrhage in the eye.
While the technique is relatively complex and requires significant commitment to training to effectively interpret scan images, its deployment remains the foundation for accurate diagnosis across a broad range of ophthalmic pathologies.
High resolution ultrasound enables the visualization of key structures that can’t be seen as clearly with lower-resolution ultrasound systems. For clearer and sharper imaging, and better accuracy, high resolution is vital.
Clearer views, better detection
What’s more, the detection of disorders like posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) in opaque ocular media is made possible with B-Scan ultrasound. With the additional capability of video capturing, advanced ultrasound systems can be used to determine ocular structures more clearly — with the additional benefit that patients are able to better understand their condition.
A history of innovation
Ever since Ellex acquired Sacramento-based ophthalmic ultrasound pioneers Innovative Imaging Inc. in 2006, the company has focused on developing the performance and application of the Eye Cubed™ ultrasound technology platform — and we continue to deploy expert ecographers to conduct training in clinical ultrasound applications.
From diagnostic A-Scan to high-frequency B-Scan, Ellex's ultrasound solutions deliver a comprehensive capability to meet your needs for both the posterior and anterior segments.
With features including advanced movie mode technology, real-time image capture, a wide range of measurement and annotation tools and reporting capabilities, and intuitive and easy-to-use software, Ellex ultrasound technology delivers all the performance requirements you're looking for.
“Real-Time Imaging is not important to B-Scan ultrasonography – it is critical. As a vitreoretinal surgeon, I use Real-Time Imaging in all exams, as observation of change over time and/or surgical planning is dependent upon a solid understanding of the position and status of the formed vitreous body – especially when there are questions concerning vitreo-retinal traction or tears. Without movement in real-time, vitreous status is almost impossible to ascertain.”
