Optic Nerve Ultrasound

Indications


Technique

  • Measure 3 (0.3 cm) mm back from retina
  • Ultrasound contrast is high at this point, allowing more reproducible measurements of ONSD
  • Measure perpendicular at that point: >5 mm (0.5 cm) width of optic nerve sheath (Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter = ONSD) indicates increased ICP (>20 mm Hg)
