Ophthalmology in the last decades has seen a great rise in new images
techniques. The appearance of fluorescein angiography, optical tomography, etc.
Highlight that other image techniques are unnecessary. But in fact in the present years,
the ocular echography has become important, and the advances with new probes with
higher frequencies, has helped us in a lot of ocular pathologies, as seen in the last
chapter. In the present chapter we describe the indications of other image techniques
used in medicine, but with poor knowledge in ophthalmology. The authors describe the
indications of computer tomography and magnetic resonance, and also define when we
use each technique.
Computer tomography, magnetic resonance, choroid tumors,
retinoblastoma, ocular calcifications, intraocular foreign body.
