They say seeing is believing...what about seeing a study about a machine that listens in order to see an organ that itself is used to see? Most scholars agree this too is believing. Of course, we are (in a convoluted way) referring to ocular ultrasound. Historically a great party trick, can this modality accurately diagnose visual problems in the emergency department? It's been done before, but it hasn't been done to this degree. Sit back, relax, and visualize the latest in ocular POCUS research. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30977855
