OBJECTIVE The aims of this prospective study were to investigate the manifestations of the hemodynamics and morphology of a normal intracranial vertebral artery (VA) and diffusely severe or localized critical vertebral artery stenosis (VAS) on transcranial color Doppler flow imaging (TCDFI) and to discuss the criteria of TCDFI in detecting severe VAS. METHODS There were 30 patients suspected of having an intracranial VAS in a patient group and 30 healthy volunteers in a control group. All the… CONTINUE READING
