TRANSCRANIAL DOPPLER CAROTID ULTRASOUND

Transcranial Doppler (TCD) provides fast, non invasive real time measures of cerebrovascular function

Carotid Duplex ultrasound (CDUS) and transcranial Doppler (TCD)
ultrasound are noninvasive methods for neurovascular evaluation of the
extra-cranial and intracranial large vessels. Carotid and TCD have been used used independently to evaluate patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) and
ischemic stroke of possible large artery origin.

As an adjunct to carotid Doppler ultrasound (CDUS), transcranial Doppler (TCD)
examines the major intracerebral arteries through the orbit and at the base of
the brain. Additionally, TCD can also be used for detection of middle cerebral
artery micro emboli that arise from the heart or carotid artery
