Orbital US: EXTRA-ocular movements

“The Eye is the window to the soul”…. or something like that…. but I actually think that ultrasound comes pretty darn close to being that window – or at least being the key to the door. Orbital US is super cool. People talk about the orbital pathology that you can assess all the time, but what is also amazing is being able to assess normal anatomy and physiology of the eye – like extra-ocular movements (by using the linear high frequency probe and a tegaderm with gel over the orbit, have the patient move their eye left and right – along the plane of the probe – then rotate the probe 90 degrees and have them move their eye up and down).
