Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) is the only noninvasive real-time neuroimaging modality for the evaluation of characteristics of blood flow in basal intracerebral vessels that adds physiologic information to structural imaging. TCD has been rapidly evolving from a simple noninvasive diagnostic tool to an imaging modality with a broad spectrum of clinical applications. In acute stroke, TCD can provide rapid information about vascular stenosis and occlusion, the hemodynamic status of… CONTINUE READING
