    THE Definitive Standard on Ophthalmic Ultrasound (Again)...Outstanding!!!

    They finally came out with a 2nd edition!! These pioneers in the field have again written the most authoritative and complete description of the physics, practice and latest technology in the field of ophthalmic ultrasound. These recognized leaders in ophthalmic ultrasound have updated their original masterwork in an elegant volume that covers the entire spectrum of ophthalmic ultrasound including the history, physics, application and pathology of ocular diagnosis. It is exceptionally well written and exceedingly readable for technician to experienced ophthalmologist! The material is presented with amazing color images and loaded with the highest resolution of the anterior segment and retina. It includes conventional 10 MHz to the newest cutting edge, very high frequency Artemis Arc scans of the anterior segment. Biometry as well as diagnostic techniques are described by acknowledged leaders in the field. Included is a DVD with an introduction by the legendary Walter Cronkite and a dozen or so of some of the very best vitreoretinal specialists in the world describing ocular pathologies- including vitreous hemorrhage, ocular tumors, and retinal detachments. An enlightening, extremely well written read and an amazing resource...my highest recommendation!! Thank you Drs. Coleman, Silverman, Lizzi et al.!!
