BACKGROUND Anatomic variety and difficult accessibility of the vertebrobasilar arteries pose considerable problems to conventional ultrasound. We evaluated the diagnostic potential of transcranial color-coded sonography in the distal part of this system. METHODS We insonated the intracranial section of the vertebrobasilar arteries through the foramen magnum window in 24 healthy individuals using a Doppler color flow imaging system in connection with a 2.5-MHz sector transducer. Magnetic… CONTINUE READING
