Abstract

High resolution, high frequency, anterior segment ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a new technique capable of imaging the structures of the anterior segment at a resolution approaching 40 μm. It is now possible to image the structures surrounding the posterior chamber (posterior iris, ciliary body, zonules, peripheral lens), examination of which has been previously limited to histopathologic examination, making it ideally suited to elucidation of the mechanisms involved in the various disorders that produce the final common pathway known as angle-closure glaucoma.
