Dr. Ronald Silverman

Dr. Ronald Silverman – Consultant

Dr. Silverman has been involved in ultrasound research in ophthalmology for 30 years. His research includes development of high-resolution imaging systems, studies of safety/bioeffects, use of high-intensity ultrasound for therapy, perfusion imaging, and tissue characterization by use of signal-processing. He has applied these techniques for study of ocular disease in animal models and clinically.

Dr. Silverman is Principal Investigator on an NIH-sponsored project utilizing high-frequency ultrasound for early diagnosis of keratoconus. The project, which is being performed in collaboration with Dr. Dan Reinstein, Director of the London Vision Clinic, involves mapping of early epithelial-thickness changes associated with changes in curvature of the underlying stroma. The study also includes characterization of the elastic properties of the cornea by use of acoustic radiation force impulse imaging (ARFI).

Dr. Silverman is also Principal Investigator a project using ARFI and vibro-acoustic imaging, another technique involving ultrasound radiation force, to study elastic properties of the retina and choroid in conjunction with phase-resolved optical coherence tomography (OCT). 

Dr. Silverman has numerous patents and was a co-founder of Ultralink, LLC, which, under license from Cornell University, developed the ultrasound system which became the ArcScan Insight® 100 ultrasound system for imaging and biometric analysis of the cornea and anterior segment. side from presenting and moderating at numerous meetings, Dr. Silverman has also often acted as an organizer for special sections. He is frequently asked to review articles in journals specializing in ophthalmology, ultrasound and optics. In addition, he serves as a grant-reviewer for the NIH.
