Part of the Documenta Ophthalmologica Proceedings Series book series (DOPS, volume 29)


Echography of the orbit has become a routine method since Ossoinig’s 1963 report on sucessful A-scan echography and Baum and Greenwood’s earlier 1958 report on B-scan echography in the detection of orbital disease.
