Ultrasound optic nerve sheath diameter measurement in optic neuritis

Published:January 22, 2019DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ajem.2019.01.035
      We read with great interest the case report written by Yee et al. regarding four cases in which they demonstrated the usefulness of transbulbar ultrasonography in evaluating the optic nerve to identify the presence of optic neuritis [
