Echography plays an important role in symptomatology investigations of ocular traumatology. Trauma causes the opacification of eye fluids, and so echography is particularly suitable for studying the endobulbar situation. We wished to enrich ocular investigations with another methodology: ultrasonic evaluation of the dimensions of intraocular foreign bodies, and report here the results obtained with experimental studies introducing foreign bodies into enucleated bovine eyes.
