    Imaging of Posterior Segment Soccer Ball and Exercise Band Injuries

    AAO 2023
    Comprehensive Ophthalmology, Retina/Vitreous

    What do soccer ball and exercise band blunt force eye injuries have in common? As Dr. William Carrera explains in this third talk from the "Sports-Related Ocular Trauma" Symposium at AAO 2023, they both can benefit from imaging of the posterior segment. Focusing on retina-related damage, Dr. Carrera presents cases from 2 different studies and explains how the use of various types of imaging (e.g., OCT) can be instrumental for early detection of serious injury and can provide a better understanding of pathophysiology and prognostication.
