Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a diagnostic imaging technique which was developed to improve the visualization of the anterior segment structures. The high resolution of UBM images significantly contributed to the qualitative comprehension of the pathogenic mechanism involved in various ocular diseases, especially in glaucoma management. UBM has been used to elucidate the etiology of plateau iris syndrome, to demonstrate the hypothesis on the angle closure in two times, to confirm the theory of the reverse pupillary block in the pigment dispersion syndrome and ciliary-block as the main mechanism involved in the pathogenesis of malignant glaucoma. Furthermore, UBM is a useful tool for examination of filtering surgical techniques and causes of failure. © 2015, Elsevier Limited. All rights reserved.

Abstract

Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a diagnostic imaging technique which was developed to improve the visualization of the anterior segment structures. The high resolution of UBM images significantly contributed to the qualitative comprehension of the pathogenic mechanism involved in various ocular diseases, especially in glaucoma management. UBM has been used to elucidate the etiology of plateau iris syndrome, to demonstrate the hypothesis on the angle closure in two times, to confirm the theory of the reverse pupillary block in the pigment dispersion syndrome and ciliary-block as the main mechanism involved in the pathogenesis of malignant glaucoma. Furthermore, UBM is a useful tool for examination of filtering surgical techniques and causes of failure. © 2015, Elsevier Limited. All rights reserved.
