Anterior segment imaging: Ultrasound biomicroscopy

Hiroshi Ishikawa, Joel S. Schuman

    Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


    Ultrasound biomicroscopy technology has become an indispensable tool in qualitative and quantitative assessment of the anterior segment. Advances in software design and algorithms will improve theoretical understanding of the pathophysiology of anterior segment disorders. Future applications of quantitative techniques will yield important information regarding mechanisms of angle closure, improving understanding of the dynamic functions of the iris, accommodation, presbyopia, and other aspects of anterior segment physiology and pathophysiology.
