Descriptive Terminology Diagnostic BScan
Speaker:  Denice Barsness, CRA, FOPS

Prerequisite: None

Previous experience performing Diagnostic B Scan helpful but not required.

The usefulness of Ophthalmic Diagnostic B Scan as performed by the ophthalmic imager/technician requires a combination of solid imaging technique with good descriptive terminology. Descriptive terms can be applied to certain ultrasonic characteristics that are encountered during the course of examination. Use of accurate descriptive terminology as precursor to the creation of an interpretive report provides the most useful information to the referring physician.

This presentation will be an overview of commonly used descriptive terms for diagnostic B scan. Through the use of case studies we will review the steps involved in accurately describing examinations for common ophthalmic diseases and disorders requiring echographic examination.

Upon completion of this course the student should be able to discuss the following points:

1) Describe the difference between descriptive vs. interpretive terms
2) List common descriptive terms used for vitreal, retinal and choroidal findings
3) Discuss how to describe movement vs. reflectivity in ophthalmic echography
