Objective: Diagnosis of retinal detachment by using ultrasonography.
Animals: 3 horses.
Procedure: Clinical examination and diagnosis of disorder on the basis of ultrasonographic findings with
7.5 MHz probe and real time B. mode technique, transpalpebrally.
Results: Ultrasonography showed echo dense linear structures resulted in classic funnel appearance of vitreous in one case and convex hyper echoic linear density of the back of globe in two cases.
Clinical implications: Ultrasonographic findings were characteristic of complete retinal detachment in one case and partial retinal detachment in two cases.
