Ultrasonography/ Orbital Clinic
Orbital surgery was first performed at the Birmingham and Midland Eye Hospital in 1971. This resulted in the development of the first Ultrasonography Clinic in the country to offer a fully comprehensive service. The work of this clinic may be sub-divided into two categories orbital ultrasonography for the detection of orbital lesions; and ocular ultrasonography for the detection of intraocular conditions, e.g. detached retina.
