The acetic acid radical CH3CO
antibody that clumps particles
computed tomography, computed axial tomography
Doppler duplex sonography
ultrasound study of the blood vessels
electromyography, electromyogram
test of muscle-nerve conduction, EMG
endolaser photocoagulation
Surgical coagulation of tissue by means of intense light energy, such as a laser, performed to destroy abnormal tissues or to form adhesive scars, especially in ophthalmology.
finger-to-nose, heel-to-shin or heel-to-knee
tests of cerebellar function
funduscopic findings
flame-shaped hemorrhages, cotton-wool patches, waxy exudates, capillary aneurysms, cell and flare, microhemorrhages
Comberg method
method of localizing foreign bodies in the eye
lumbar puncture
magnetic resonance imaging, a non-x-ray imaging test
neurologic tests in physical examination
pinprick, position, vibration, Brudzinski\'s sign, Kernig sign
pars plana vitrectomy
removal of vitreous by aspiration through a needle inserted over the pars plana ciliaris
SF6 gas
used to fill the eye at surgery
slit lamp
one embodying a diaphragm containing a slit-like opening, by means of which a narrow, flat beam of intense light may be projected into the eye. It gives intense illumination so that microscopic study may be made of the conjunctiva, cornea, iris, lens and vitreous, the special feature being that it illuminates a section through the substance of these structures
An alkaloid obtained from belladonna and related plants, used to dilate the pupils of the eyes and as an antispasmodic, antisudorific, and anticholinergic

Any of a group of barbituric acid derivatives that act as central nervous system depressants and are used as sedatives or hypnotics
A synthetic drug used in the treatment of hypertension and for the prevention of migraine headaches
A trademark for the drug acetazolamide
A trademark for the drug hydromorphone hydrochloride
erythrocyte sedimentation rate
Hct, HCT
Hemophilus (genus)
IgG, IgM, IgE, IgA, IgD
the brand name for procaine hydrochloride, an ester, which is no longer used in the United States as an injectable. It is also the lay term for all types of dental local anesthesia
platelet count
determination of the total number of platelets per cubic millimeter of blood; the direct platelet c. simply counts the cells using a microscope, and the indirect platelet c. determines the ratio of platelets to erythrocytes on a peripheral blood smear and computes the number of platelets from the erythrocyte count
an anticonvulsant used in the control of various kinds of epilepsy and of seizures associated with neurosurgery
Streptococcus (genus)
pneumoniae, alpha-hemolytic
Weber test
A test for differentiating conductive hearing impairment from sensorineural hearing impairment. A vibrating tuning fork is applied to one of several points in the midline of the forehead; if the sound is heard better in the impaired ear, the middle-ear apparatus is at fault; if the sound is heard better in the normal ear, the hearing impairment is caused by diseased sensorineural apparatus
