Dx: Ruptured Vessel
The ultrasound image shows a view of the globe with the retina at the bottom of the image. The vitreous humor appears anechoic (black) and the retina echoic (gray).

It does not appear to be connected to the retina, making it a bit atypical in appearance for a retinal detachment. A vitreous detachment could also look like this on ultrasound, but would also be attached at some point to the posterior globe. Examination by ophthalmology with his fancy gadgets and unique skill set revealed that this echoic area seen on ultrasound was ...
