Recent large-scale transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) studies have revealed that, in 3%-5% of patients, the temporal bone window is insufficient for examination with 2-MHz probes. The diagnostic value of a new 1-MHz probe for TCD was compared with a standard 2-MHz probe in patients with an insufficient ultrasonic window. From a total population of 514 consecutive patients, the study involved only patients in whom a bad or absent temporal bone window was revealed during 2-MHz TCD examination… CONTINUE READING
