Early in its development, ophthalmic ultrasound split into two major camps: one led by Dr Coleman and the other by Karl Ossoinig, MD. Both men had distinct opinions regarding the optimal techniques for examination, and their spirited interchanges added spice to ophthalmology meetings and journals. When Dr Coleman published the first edition of Ultrasonography of the Eye and Orbit in 1977, it became the major reference for the field. Almost 30 years later, this second edition highlights the advances and current status of this field as seen through the eyes of one of its pioneers. The authors have extensive experience in the design and use of ophthalmic ultrasound instrumentation. They clearly explain the fundamental physics of ultrasound in layperson's as well as in more precise mathematical terms. They highlight the advantages and limitations of different scanning modalities, such as sector, linear, and arc scans, and discuss the factors that determine the quality of B-scan images. Dr Coleman, despite his passion for his own methods, also provides an objective analysis of his and Dr Ossoinig's methods.
