Role of transcranial Doppler ultrasonography in evaluation of patients with cerebrovascular disease

Role of transcranial Doppler ultrasonography in evaluation of patients with cerebrovascular disease

Current Neurology and Neuroscience Reports 7(1): 8-20

Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) is the only noninvasive examination method that enables the reliable evaluation of blood flow from the basal intracerebral vessels, adding physiologic information to the anatomic images. TCD is relatively inexpensive, can be performed at bedside, and allows monitoring in acute emergency settings and for prolonged periods with a high temporal resolution, making it ideal for studying dynamic cerebrovascular responses. In acute stroke, TCD is capable of providing rapid information about the hemodynamic status of the cerebral circulation and monitoring recanalization in real-time, with a potential for enhancing tissue plasminogen activator-induced thrombolysis. Extended applications such as emboli monitoring, right-to-left shunt detection, and vasomotor reactivity make TCD an important and valuable tool for evaluating stroke mechanisms, planning and monitoring treatment, and determining prognosis.
